I was starting to get worried, all my troubles have now melted away.

The graphics look different/better than the xbox/psp remakes.

...and hope for mankind is restored.

I wonder what this "exclusive Governor's mansion" is about.

It looks like it also has the Wii mini-games!

I remember really liking the xbox version...I hope they keep porting older classics. I would love to see sim golf, but I doubt that will ever happen.
