Can someone explain how Cage and others say it does not have QTE'S?

I just played the demo and it was full of quick time events. So I don't understand why people say that it does not have any quick time events. Do I not understand what a quick time event is? To me a QTE is where you have to press a button, or stick in a specific way or at a specific time or else character dies, or fails. That is exactly what is going on in the demo. I loved Heavy Rain, but I was hoping this game was a full control game.

I think they're considered to be less of QTE's just because there's no other way to play a game like this. But compared to Heavy Rain, it's definitely got a more responsive feel to it, since fighting is encouraged by following Jodie's movements, as opposed to on-screen prompts.

I don't know... the demo has just as many as Heavy Rain did in my mind... I almost dont want to buy it because of it. I feel like it takes away from the experience somehow. Don't know how to explain it.
