This latest trailer — which features some gameplay footage — manages to pull at the heart-strings once more, but we're starting to feel like the tone is a bit misleading.

While the trailers try to portry emotion and sadness, everything we've heard about the game depicts a run-of-the-mill zombie slasher. You combine items to create weapons which you use to cut up zombies. There's no emotion in that.

Hopefully we're wrong, but we can't help but feel Dead Island is pretending to be something it's not.
