Sorry, but that meme was tired 3 years ago. Saying Twilight Princess is "basically Ocarina with a few changes and lots of improvements", is pretty much describing ANY game in the series, or just about ANY sequel in ANY series, for that matter. It's a generic, blanket statement, and quite honestly, it's not true at all.
Twilight Princess shares many items, weapons, concepts, characters, themes, and gameplay mechanics with Ocarina of Time. So did Wind Waker. So does pretty much EVERY Zelda game. But to actually compare TP to OoT side by side, they are two vastly different games. Two very different stories, and frankly, TP has a LOT more happening in it, a lot DIFFERENT happening in it, than OoT did. And that goes beyond just the Twilight Realm and Wolf transformations. The feel of the game is different (and darker). The land of Hyrule, while sharing a few key areas (Zora's lake, Gordon's mountain, Hyrule Castletown), is WAY different, far more fleshed out than OoT.
Mario Galaxy 2 is far more similar, overall, to Galaxy 1, than TP is to OoT. It literally pretty much is Mario Galaxy 1.5 (not that that's a bad thing, because it's pretty awesome). But Twilight Princess is entirely it's own game, as every Zelda has been. It shares the same kind of look at Ocarina of Time, but that's a good thing. And Zelda Wii is supposed to share an "evolved" form of that same look as well. That doesn't mean Zelda Wii is going to "basically be TP but with some stuff changed and a bunch of things improved". However, considering that OoT IS still the highest rated game ever, how could anyone possibly begrudge the similarities in the first place? If anything, I think Twilight Princess, for it's time, was/is just as deserving of a 10 rating, as OoT was in IT'S time.
At least that's my opinion. It's still the best 3D action game I've ever played (for now).
