The New Dead Island's First Trailer Is Not as Amazing as the First Dead Island's Trailer

The CGI trailer for Dead Island: Riptide does seem kind of similar to that emotionally riveting one for the first Dead Island game.

Slow, soft (though not as good) music. A focus on loving characters in a bad spot. Pretty, warm colors. A sad ending. It just doesn't go in reverse. And it certainly didn't capture me quite like the first game's trailer, which you can reminisce about below:
