I was in Gamestop today and saw this: Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil: Nintendo Wii: Video Games

From the case it looks like Resident Evil Remake ported to the Wii. If it is a port, what has been added that makes it different than the Gamecube version besides lame motion controls possibly being tacked on?

What is this game about, should I consider purchasing it?

it's just a port, nothing new added I believe.

Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil Remake were ported (Zero wasn't released in America/Europe yet) to the Wii with motion controls added and.... well, nothing else. No widescreen support, no 480p, no new stuff.
