The Top Five Legend of Zelda Clones is an article by Zac Pritcher from Everyview.com, that is about exactly that. The top five ‘Zelda-like’ games that are perfect to hold us Zelda fans captive until we get Skyward Sword in 2011. The top five includes 3D Dot Game Heroes, Beyond Oasis, Darksiders, Neutopia and Okami. You’ll have to check the article out for yourself to find out the order and reasoning, but it is all pretty agreeable with in my opinion.
As the author says: “These five games should be more than enough to keep you entertained while you wait for Skyward Sword and the 3D remake of Ocarina of Time next year. And don’t worry if your favorite Zelda clone didn’t make my list, just leave your choice(s) below… Either that or just call me an idiot. Whichever you are most comfortable with.”
