    WTF?! An article about/list of Zelda Clones and no mention of Ys, the greatest Zelda Clone of all time?
  • Superdude576 - June 14, 2014 5:16 p.m.

    I'm pretty sure Okami came before Twilight Princess. Like, 3 years before Twilight Princess. It's not exactly a "rip-off" when it came first. Even if it did come later (it's been a while and I'm too busy to look up the release dates), the games are quite different. There's a crazy thing called inspiration that this author is mistaking for idea theft.

    Pretty sure Okami only beat TP to market in the States by 2 months. It did beat it by several months in Japan. Both games were released in 2006, but TP was unveiled back in 2004 quite a while before Okami was. I will agree that Okami isn't so much of clone of TP but you can clearly see the inspiration from the series with a few homages

    There's a game that I have been playing a lot that has elements of Zelda in it, called Evoland. It even states in the description that it is a collection of every RPG type, including Zelda. It's a great game, once you progress far enough to unlock the save points :S :P

    I believe it's more like a genre of games anyway. I love both Zelda and Okami. Some of these games on the list may have and probably did rip off Zelda, but I don't believe games like Okami, BGandE, or Darksiders did. Also, I would add "Hey, Ice King Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?" and "Binding of Isaac" to this list. They fit the genre.

    i dont` like games Okami and same like that, but. . .

    3D Dot Heroes is a pretty clear tribute, not a rip off. I guess rip off is not the right word in this whole article though. You know, unless Zelda owns a copyright on games with puzzles in them...

    *looks at profile picture* You know where my allegiances lie

    Beyond Good & Evil felt like it ripped off Star Fox Adventure: Dinosaur Planet. The combat felt similar to that game and it was also as linear.

    I think adding the systems for each game would be brilliant in case I don't know some games & I want to check them.
  • wittynickname - May 16, 2014 11:55 a.m.

    Don't know if anyone else has played Horn, for iOS or Android, but I got a Zelda vibe numerous times while making my way through it.

    I could never bring myself to play a Zelda game. But Okami is a different story. I had to download a emulator just to play it, and even though it runs like crap (thanks emulator) I still play it.
  • vinverga - May 16, 2014 8:16 a.m.

    I would say 3D Dot Game Heroes pays tribute to Zelda
  • Shigeruken - May 15, 2014 11:53 p.m.

    I want Okami on my Vita so badly.
  • MeanwhileGuy - May 15, 2014 11:42 p.m.

    The other games I don't really care about, but there's no way in hell Beyond Good and Evil and Okami ripped off Zelda. Especially as Okami came out *before* Twilight Princess. So if anything, Zelda ripped off Okami.
  • MrOliver - May 18, 2014 11:35 p.m.

    now it wasn't really the wolf part that was a "rip-off" (i feel Game Radar uses that word a bit loosely), but more of the core of how the game plays.
  • Kijib - May 15, 2014 11 p.m.

    Okami is the best Zelda game, could never will myself to beat any Zelda game, but Okami was just that good
  • Kaldor - May 15, 2014 6:21 p.m.

    I would say more "inspired by" than "Copied" because under this logic all modern FPS games are "copies" of Doom & Wolfenstein 3D.

    Rambo for the NES was a copy of Zelda II: Links Adventure.
