Best stealth games on PC 2023

The best stealth games occupy a curious niche in PC gaming. Occasionally, the best stealth games are their own thing, resulting from a developer channelling all the mechanics into the suspense and satisfaction of killing, stealing, and infiltrating unnoticed. Most of the time, though, stealth is just one of several ways you can navigate a game, as you consciously opt for the path of the shadowy rogue or incisive assassin over more forceful approaches.

Nothing beats the thrill of doing things on the down low, which is why some of these are the best PC games out there. Stealth games highlight that neat joy of entering a space and leaving it unchanged except for the briefcase you were told to extract or that one person who was your target now lying dead without anyone having noticed – the alarms going off at the precise moment you coolly walk away from the scene undetected.

The best stealth games are:


To us, stealth games are a lot like puzzles. Every move is considered and requires a dollop of thought. No wonder, then, that Gunpoint proves to be so thrilling. This stealth game puts you in the modded boots of a detective, framed for a crime he didn’t commit but was there to see.

As a trenchcoated problem solver, you’re not one for fighting. That’s why each level tasks you with hacking everything from light switches and door panels to CCTV systems and trap doors, creating openings to sneak on through to your objective.

Okay, if you want to cheat and pistol whip a henchman, you can. However, if you set off an alarm, a timer starts, rushing you toward the exit if you can complete the objective in time. Fail to do so, and a shooter will be waiting for you by the exit. It is a disincentive, challenging you to engage with the stealth-based gameplay Gunpoint demands.

It’s worth it, too, as whenever you complete a level, you creep your way out of the level and fade into the night, feeling like a proper spy in the process.

Mark of the Ninja

Those versatile folks at Klei Entertainment make their second appearance on this list – clearly, they have more than one hidden blade in their sheath. While Invisible Inc. is an indie game that focuses on tactics and big decisions, Mark of the Ninja ingeniously squeezes mechanics from stealth games into the form of a 2D platformer.

Lighting, sound, and hiding spots are crucial as you stick to the shadows in the platform game and leap between vantage points before swooping down on your prey with shurikens, blades, and smoke bombs. It is mechanically simple stuff, allowing you to plan out and focus purely on concise kills and swift 3-4 step combos – jump down, kill, roll through shadows, and kill some more.

The 2D plane makes the stealth gameplay feel wonderfully focused, letting you fully assess all available means of dealing with obstacles in the quietest possible way. Mark of the Ninja transcends stealth games and 2D platforming, managing to be a unique masterclass of both.


Some of the best stealth games can feel turn-based – even those that are not Invisible, Inc. They are the ones that have you marking targets, mapping patrol routes, and mentally solving problems – all before uncloaking and triggering the action when you’re ready. The Dishonored series is the epitome of that style and, as a bonus, is just as good for combo-slinging predatory combat when you’re spotted.

Beyond that, Arkane’s games are a Ghoster’s dream, with mission stats screens that track not only how many civvies you have killed but also whether you’ve been detected, raised any alarms, or left bodies in plain sight. Perhaps most enticing for stealth game purists is the opportunity to refuse the magical powers offered to you by Dishonored 2 and approach the game as a contemporary Thief sequel. Only, er, a good one.

Better still, if you have completed the first and second Dishonored and still want more of the best stealth games, then the standalone follow-up is brilliant, as you’ll find in our Dishonored: Death of the Outsider review.

Invisible Inc.

Remember that trope about some of the best stealth games taking well-established game mechanics and dedicating them all to creating the quintessential sneaking experience? Well, this is precisely that.

Invisible Inc. is instantly accessible thanks to its turn-based mechanics. And you can find almost endless challenges in its randomised levels and permadeath design. It is a stealth game of sci-fi gadgetry, hacking, and slinking to and fro as you attempt to steal things from tightly-guarded bases, creating untold moments of weighty decision-making. Do you haul your incapacitated buddy to the extraction point, knowing that if you do not, you will lose them for the rest of the campaign, or do you use that precious time to try and steal a power-up that could make the rest of the campaign much easier?

Even though we associate the best stealth games with real-time suspense, Invisible, Inc. still captures that thanks to cleverly implemented time limits. This is a game for the tinkering stealth tactician.

Hitman 3

Since the reboot back in 2016, the Hitman games have been creeping up to a dramatic conclusion as Agent 47 hunts down the leaders of the secret organisation: Providence. This cabal is largely responsible for the world’s affairs and Agent 47’s upbringing, but now he must dispose of its members in one of many elaborate ways.

Like the rest of the reboot series, the choice is entirely yours. You can find a vantage point to snipe your target or infiltrate the scene, sabotaging materials to get a clear opportunity to take them down. No matter your play style, Hitman 3 ramps up the tension nicely and even includes some one-off Elusive Hunts to ramp up the challenge.

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

The Splinter Cell series has always been inspired by Thief’s extreme focus on light and sound in levels. And with Chaos Theory, the series mastered it, even considering details like your noise relative to the environment.

Chaos Theory is ripe with innovative stealth game mechanics that still feel good today. You can extract information from enemies by holding knives to their throats (and relishing the startled looks on their faces), pulling them over edges, hanging them upside-down from rafters to break necks, and phht-phht them with a silenced pistol. With his night-vision goggles, Sam Fisher is a master of the game’s nocturnal, shadowy environments. It is great fun shooting out lights and tormenting your disoriented enemies like a less ostentatious Batman.

It’s one of the few stealth games that also works well as a co-op game by letting you take on dedicated missions with a buddy – complete with co-op stealth moves like holding a cable while the other player reels down it and hurls each other like cannonballs into enemies.

Alien: Isolation

It might be regarded as one of the best horror games – and one of the best games of 2014 – but what do you do? You hide in lockers, hardly ever stop crouching, and stay out of sight, desperately trying not to attract the attention of an instant-killing xenomorph. Sure, Alien: Isolation’s atmosphere evokes pure horror, but mechanically it is also one of the best stealth games around.

Our Alien: Isolation review shows that what makes it special is that, unlike many of its peers, your enemy is volatile and unpredictable, and there is no way to anticipate its patterns other than by tracking that foreboding blip on your radar. Noise is both your best friend and your worst enemy. An ill-judged sprint can result in an alien tail through the stomach, but a noisemaker chucked into an enemy patrol can lead to their swift deaths and your equally swift getaway.

Commandos 2

Few people have ever been any good at Commandos, but everyone respects it as one of the best stealth games. The grizzled WW2 game puts you in control of a squad of elite soldiers, each with unique skills, and chucks you into gruelling puzzle-like levels to sneak and sabotage your way through.

Each mission takes a long time, and ‘taking things as they come’ is the worst strategy you could possibly adopt. You must always plan several steps ahead, monitoring enemies’ lines of sight, patrol patterns, and notable hiding spots. One wrong move, and you won’t be able to click your mouse fast enough to get out of it. Fail to control the situation, and it’s a swift execution.

With its pre-rendered backgrounds and isometric perspective, Commandos 2 is one of those stealth games where you can grumble that ‘they don’t make ’em like they used to’ and ponder wistfully about what a faithful modern rendition of it would look like.

Metal Gear Solid 5

Metal Gear Solid 5 is many things: an open-world adventure with one of the maddest gaming stories of 2015, an explosive action game, and a sandbox game packed with fantastic systems you can toy with to your heart’s content. Despite all this, we found in our Metal Gear Solid 5 review that it does not forget its roots and remains the best Metal Gear yet. That’s provided you can resist the urge to open fire with an MG when skulking through an enemy base.

Snake’s movement flows smoothly between crouching, diving, and crawling as you infiltrate outposts from any angle using knives, heavily customisable firearms, and the classic cardboard box that MGS enemies still have not grown suspicious of after all these years. It is a joy to sneak up on an enemy and interrogate him for valuable information before dispatching him into the cosmos with the devilishly fun Fulton Balloon.

The new Reflex Mode encourages the silent approach, which grants you a couple of slow-mo seconds after you have been spotted to take out your enemy and continue your mission undetected. After all these years, Snake’s repertoire of moves keeps him among our most beloved stealth game protagonists.

Thief 2

It may be old, but at least it’s better than the reboot: our Thief review shows our disappointment at the game’s anti-open world. At points, it is as creaky as the Mechanist Sentinels patrolling its later levels. Still, Thief 2 is peerless among pure stealth games – others only dare to borrow elements from it rather than try to replicate it wholesale.

That is because Thief 2 does not pander to the cheap thrills, slick action, and bloodshed that we modern gamers crave. It is almost stark in its stealthiness as you wander around the seminal, sprawling levels while staying out of sight at all costs. It remains one of the few games to utilise lighting as a viable stealth mechanic, and your ideal conditions are those in which you can hardly see a thing because that means your enemies cannot see you either.

Its open levels are brilliantly designed, set around grand mansions and cathedrals that you do not feel the least bit guilty about robbing blind. But you will not be exploring them using radars, x-ray vision, or fancy abilities à la modern stealth games like Splinter Cell and MGS; it is just you, your senses, and your blackjack if you need it.


Deathloop is a stealth action game set on the fictional island of Blackreef, where you play as Colt Vahn, a man who wakes up on the beach surrounded by empty beer bottles and a hazy recollection of the day before. It’s not long until you’re introduced to the island’s hostile and manic inhabitants; mask-wearing fanatics and a group of assassins called the Eternalists.

Deathloop isn’t exclusively a stealth game, but it can be played as such, and its many missions, puzzles, and fights warrant the stealth approach. The island is teeming with enemies, and everyone is your enemy. While it’s fun to blast your way through areas with your collection of powerful abilities and special weapons, it’s sometimes easier to crouch and avoid detection, so you don’t have to start all over again.

There we have it: The best sneak ’em ups available to play on your stealthy PC. Wait, no, not yours: you need to calm down your GPU fans. You won’t get by undetected with all that whirring going on. Anyway, if you’ve had your fill of murder all on your lonesome, take up arms as part of a massive fighting force with the best war games. But for now, we must disappear into the shadows. And so should you…

Prompt delivery for a great headset C6-100(LED)

I ordered my Stealth headset a while ago now and wanted to wait until I reviewed so I could experience the product first. I read some reviews on delivery however, I did not experience this issue and it totally reassured me so I do think those customers have just been unfortunate with all the strikes etc that have been happening of late.

Product wise, I am 1000% satisfied with my headset, I love them – they’re super comfy with the soft foam and they’ve helped with hugely with noise cancellation which is why I ordered them, I love the LED lights on the side of them too and that I can turn these on/off separately. The audio button and volume wheel has also been a great feature and has helped a lot when online.

10/10 for me, couldn’t be happier. Will be ordering again! Thanks Stealth ☺️

Top 10 Stealths of the Decade. From Mark of the Ninja to Metal Gear Solid V – Igromania

January 11, 2020/Special

Updated 05/17/2023



They say smart people won’t go uphill , a smart mountain will bypass. If so, then stealth action is definitely not for ordinary minds: in most representatives of the genre, workarounds and tricky loopholes are not an option, but an urgent need.

Our list of the best stealth games of the decade includes shooters, horror, and even tactics. They have one thing in common: if you want to survive until the end credits, you have to sneak, hide and eliminate enemies on the sly. And even though other projects make it possible to clumsily rush through the levels in a bloody whirlwind, secretive passage will still come out easier … and more beautiful.

Of course, first of all This War of Mine is a tactical and survival simulator. But stealth plays an important role here. A group of civilians in a besieged city, which must survive until the end of the war under the strict guidance of the player, is not well suited for open clashes with the military. These are not superheroes, not mercenaries, but the most ordinary people who are not ready for the nightmare that awaits them outside the shelter. But supplies inevitably run out, and from time to time someone will have to crawl out to get hold of food and fuel.

This is where stealth comes in. It is better to hide from the sentinels than to engage in a skirmish – her friends will surely run to the screams of the victim (in extreme cases, you can hide somewhere, and then quickly cut the enemy from the shadows). Where the sniper is on duty, you will have to run from cover to cover while he reloads his rifle. Before peeking into a locked room, it is recommended to look through the keyhole, and master keys are prepared for unyielding doors. In short, if you like quiet theft more than robbery with guns drawn, project ‎ 11 bit studios gives all the possibilities for this.

Most modern representatives of stealth-action somehow admit that opponents can be smeared on the wall with a mini-machine gun under the floor, if you screwed up and attracted their attention. However, in the spin-off of the mediocre RPG Of Orcs and Men , stealth was not a means to an end, but a harsh necessity: the frail goblin Styx died from a couple of pokes with a toothpick. Whether you like it or not, you had to carefully study the huge arena levels, tremble with every breath of wind and pray that the enemy would die faster while Styx strangles him behind the backs of the patrolmen.

Styx: Master of Shadows is hardcore in its own way – and at the same time non-linear: there is more than one way to achieve the goal. The dense atmosphere of gloomy fantasy with a slight admixture of steampunk adds color: a harmful goblin who cynically mows down enemies and vomits into their porridge so that they get poisoned and die, against the backdrop of terrible orcs, vile people and disgusting elves looks like a pretty good guy. Despite some secondary, the game Cyanide Studios compiles all the ideas so well that you don’t think about their freshness. If only that guard didn’t turn off the route and pass under the right chandelier, ready to collapse on his head!

Eighth place — Hitman 2 (2018)

IO Interactive are the most brilliant scammers on the planet: only they can sell the same game twice with minimal changes, making fans admire the fruits of their labors. Hitman 2 is easy to confuse with its 2016 predecessor: the same mechanics, the same breakdown into episodes, the same spacious open locations and a lot of opportunities for brilliant murders … But the sequel has become even closer to the perfect killer simulator, and there are no equals to it yet.

The development of each level here reaches some unthinkable scale: the game can safely be subtitled “A Million Ways to Eliminate the Target and Go Unnoticed.” And here is one of the best cooperative game modes: in Ghost Mode they offer to compete with a friend and spoil all the raspberries for him, distracting the opponent a moment before eliminating the target in order to remove it himself. Unexpected and fun situations in the co-op – in bulk, and this makes Hitman 2 the coolest assassin simulator … unlike the same ossified Assassin’s Creed .

After Conviction spitting on all the standards, seemed like Sam Fisher could be retired. .. but the next part of the classic series returned to the roots of the genre, managing to please both old fans and new audiences. For beginners, we have a beautiful, moderately casual hub, rich customization options and spectacular action inserts. For veterans, this is what they once fell in love with Splinter Cell : a hardcore spy thriller where a tranquilizer dart is your best friend.

Each level can be completed by smashing everything to pieces or quietly running past enemies like a true pacifist. It is interesting to play this way and that way: fans of open battles will have a hard time when the enemy fighters are overgrown with thick armor, while the latter will have to proudly and calmly dive through the dark nooks and crannies. Although the levels are linear, they are spacious and rich in secret paths and detours. If you miss the classic hide-and-shoot, Blacklist is for you – the old school skill of hide-and-seek is still in honor here.

The best thing about Mankind Divided is the same game as Human Revolution (seemingly one of the ideals of the genre), only better. For fans of stealth – in particular, because here the mechanics have been brought to mind, and it works like clockwork. HR did not always allow you to go through the game without bloodshed: sometimes it was impossible to properly knock out enemies from cover, and there weren’t too many really useful implants for a covert game without killing. But in MD, a reinforced taser helps a lot not to get involved in open fights against the crowd.

In addition, Mankind Divided gives the player the motivation to complete the game without shedding blood. The conflict between people with mechanical augmentations and mere mortals is a topic so relevant in our time that the events in the game cannot be taken abstractly. You easily associate the hero with yourself, take every moral choice to heart, you understand that killings will be a heavy burden on your soul and will affect later – not on the final statistics, but on the overall impression of the game. Stealth passage becomes not a feature, not a competition, but a conscious decision.

Fifth place — Prey (2017)

The fact that employees of Arkane Studios know how to work with stealth, we were convinced back in Dishonored . Over the shooter Prey they tried no less. From a banal plot about aliens who arranged a bloody ball on a space station, it was easy to make a secondary horror; but the adventures of Morgan Yu are more like solid science fiction from the time when space seemed to be something romantic and alluring, albeit dangerous.

It is quite possible to run through the gilded halls of Talos I station, shooting mimics with a shotgun, but there are still more non-lethal weapons and abilities for stealth passage. For a significant part of the game, the hero will be deprived of powerful guns, so stealth is indispensable. Hospitable vents will almost always offer detours; having borrowed from the aliens the ability to turn into inanimate objects, it is easy to hide from the enemy, pretending to be a chair or a mug. Buried in a locked door, nearby you will definitely find another way to the goal – and not one. And it is better to shoot any mimic from the back, hiding around the nearest corner: if you acquire the necessary skill, the damage of an ambush attack will come out many times more than in a head-on collision.

If you could imagine the perfect stealth platformer, it would be Mark of the Ninja . The creators of the dilogy Shank managed to convey the feeling of the hard work of a ninja, albeit a little romanticizing the shadow warriors. The variety of techniques and possibilities opens up an incredible scope for action. You can methodically mow down everyone and everything. You can climb the ceiling in the style of Spider-Man, bypassing opponents. You can arrange a ballet with enemies, pitting them against each other and provoking them to shoot at each other, in order to then cynically deal with the last survivor.

The most interesting thing is that in the end you have to use all available possibilities. The game is incredibly balanced in terms of the dynamics of the passage: once you get used to the fact that enemies are easy to cut with a dagger or sneak in the dark from above, they will begin to wear shields and illuminate the space around them with flashlights. You have to adapt – and each fight in the end is not like the previous one, and the comic style turns the game into a bright and memorable cartoon.

How do games usually work? You choose a couple of your favorite guns and gadgets and go through the whole game with them without changing your arsenal until the very end.

How does MGS V work? Turns every mission into a Hollywood production, forcing you to solve even the most trivial tasks with non-obvious – and sometimes devilishly inventive methods.

Of course, you can take everyone out the old fashioned way with tranquilizer darts here. But it will work the first couple of times, until the enemies start putting on helmets with body armor. Then you have to dodge: discover new developments at the base, master other tactics, deal with technology, actively use the Fulton system . .. an animal soaring in the sky? And there are 9 such moments in the great creation0017 Hideo Kojima – in bulk. No stealth action game has looked and looks so spectacular!

What to do when the enemy cannot be killed? That’s right – run away … or hide.

Remembering the origins of the history of the xenomorph, Creative Assembly decided that they had done enough shooters about the creation of Hans Giger and Ridley Scott. So stealth in Alien: Isolation is not just a way of passing, but a lifestyle. For the time being, the heroine, in principle, has no weapons to resist the Alien: it remains to rely only on shelters and distracting maneuvers. When it appears, instead of dashing shooting monsters with a plasma rifle, you are given a flamethrower and homemade bombs that scare off the enemy for a short time. There is nothing to think about rushing to the final, clearing the way with shotgun charges: in addition to the xenomorph and frightened people, the space station is full of androids, and for the time being, getting involved in open confrontation with them is more expensive for yourself. He ran, stomping loudly on the echoing floor, or fired – he attracted the attention of the one who was relentlessly crawling after him, dropping acid saliva. Caught by a monster – instant death. Cats and mice raised to the absolute.

Even in safe zones where there is no Alien access, just mow down enemies to the right and left will not work: there is not much ammo, especially on high difficulties. So, long live hide-and-seek in lockers, crawling through vents and a frantic search for bedside tables where you can dive to avoid encountering marauders or annoying robots. Fortunately, game designers have tried, and there are a lot of workarounds. And in other locations, it is possible to set the Alien on interfering people: there must be some benefit from the xenomorph!

First place — Dishonored (2012)

The misadventures of the dishonored Corvo Attano, unjustly convicted for the murder of his beloved empress, is a story of revenge. All that is required of the hero is to consistently eliminate vile traitors to the crown in order to find the kidnapped princess and help her ascend the throne. It would seem that the plot perfectly justifies the protagonist if he decides to arrange a fervent massacre … and Dishonored can really be passed without hiding, flooding the streets with blood and getting genuine pleasure from it. Fortunately, there are a lot of weapons and spectacular animations of murders.

Another thing is that Dishonored reveals its true potential only when the player chooses the path of stealth. You can go through the same mission ten times – and not exhaust all the ways to quietly get to the goal. Climb over the heads of enemies along a beam, very conveniently suspended in one corridor, or jump over the chandeliers in another; move into a rat and sneak into the right room through the ventilation; stop time or move consciousness into a servant in order to calmly pass by the guards; hack security devices so that they incinerate the guards themselves – far from a complete list of options. In addition, killing enemies quietly, turning the corpses into immediately disappearing ashes, is much more fun than an artless bloodbath.

At the same time, Dishonored is pushing with all its might to pass it not only in a gentlemanly style, but also bloodlessly. Sneaking past guards is often faster than cutting them all out. The gloomy steampunk world reacts sensitively and encourages those who choose not to get their hands dirty: a good ending, a kind attitude of NPCs, the absence of unnecessary difficulties and hordes of plague rats on the streets. Let there be enough means in the game for the lethal elimination of scoundrels, but non-lethal ones are the most elegant, sophisticated … and much more cruel. A quick death is a mercy compared to years of rotting in the mines or slowly languishing from the plague in the backyard of the empire you once ruled. At the end of a cunning multi-move that sends another bastard into eternal exile, you experience much deeper satisfaction than from artless murder.

Dishonored gives you every opportunity to feel like the greatest killer – but there is a special charm in being known as the greatest killer without actually killing anyone. For the wealth of choice, ingenuity, detailed setting and excellent plot DLC, the Arcane project deserves not only the highest ratings, but also the title of the best stealth game of the decade. They didn’t do anything cooler in the genre after him – and they are unlikely to do it in the foreseeable future.

Top 5 stealth games of all time (2022)

What are stealth games?

Stealth games are games in which you complete tasks while trying to remain unnoticed. Missions in different stealth games may vary. Stealth games on PC and consoles are often part of the war game genre, so they often feature battles. At the same time, MMO games are rarely in the stealth genre.

Let’s go back to the 80s and look at the famous Pac-Man game. If you know where to download games for PC for free, you can easily find it. Can Pac-Man be called a stealth game?

Let’s remember the gameplay. You must eat the yellow dots and fruit pieces while avoiding the ghosts. This is precisely the essence of stealth games – to achieve your goal, avoiding direct contact with the enemy. You are unlikely to find stealth games in the top MMORPGs of 2022.

In our article, we’re going to talk about stealth games on PC and consoles that go beyond basic game mechanics and combine elements from different genres.

However, in these games, your main task is to hide from your pursuers, complete the mission unnoticed without raising an alarm, and defeat your enemies. Now that you know what stealth games are, let’s take a look at our ranking.

Most Played Stealth Game

Picking out the best stealth games of all time is as difficult as listing the top Android games of 2021 or ranking the best survival horror games.

For example, the best stealth games on PC might not be as fun on PlayStation. At the same time, some people like military stealth games, others like isometric spy games, and still others prefer browser-based online strategy games.

So, despite the fact that most good stealth games are liked by users regardless of the platform (just like mobile MMORPGs are not inferior to PC titles), we have added a few more criteria for the best stealth games to our ranking.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is the best stealth game ever.

When it comes to stealth games, the Metal Gear Solid franchise is almost unparalleled. The main reason why this franchise in general, and The Phantom Pain in particular, is at an unattainable height is that the ways to win are only limited by your imagination.

This is a classic stealth game where you have complete freedom of movement. The player decides how to strike and where to hide.

For example, in The Phantom Pain, you can use various tricks to hire assistants and join forces to defeat the enemy. You can sit in the bushes with a sniper, getting rid of opponents from a long distance.

There aren’t many top-notch strategy games where you can show your wits and imagination like Metal Gear Solid 5. Therefore, we consider it the best stealth game. There is only one drawback, it will not work for free.

Best Story – The Last of Us Part II

In stealth games on PC and consoles, gamers tend to focus on the mechanics and missions. These are important elements of the game, but not only they make it really cool.

The Last of Us Part II is one of the best stealth games because of its storyline. You alternately control Ellie, who seeks revenge after a tragedy, and Abby, a soldier trying to destroy a religious sect.

In both lines, a drama unfolds in the full sense of the word. The post-apocalyptic world creates its own atmosphere, and thanks to the rich facial expressions of the characters, deep dialogues and a well-developed plot, the game makes a lasting impression. No new free online games can match Last of Us Part II for cinematic quality.

If you are a fan of stealth games and are looking for a project that will pull you in like a Hollywood blockbuster, The Last of Us Part II is what you need. By the way, if you don’t know what to give a gamer, take a closer look at the merchandise released by Sony in honor of the anniversary of the game’s release.

Best Creative Stealth Game – Hitman 3

The Hitman series has been a hit (pardon the pun) for two decades now. In the first part, you get to know Agent 47, who, like no one else, knows how to merge with the environment and quietly kill the bad guys.

Hitman 3 is the final part of the World of Assassin trilogy. The story arc of the character is coming to its logical conclusion. You have to completely destroy the secret organization Providence.

What sets Hitman 3 apart from the other best stealth games on PC and consoles is how you can avoid exposure. You might want to get a little more creative than just hiding in the dark or behind walls.

Change your appearance and pretend to be other people to get closer to your enemy. Cunning and deceiving in all available ways. We believe that Hitman 3 is one of the best stealth games out there. A mobile port is also available as part of the Hitman franchise called Blood Money. Similar games for Android can be downloaded for free on thematic sites.

The most fun stealth game is Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

Stealth games don’t have to be serious. The Sly Cooper series is aimed at younger gamers or those who enjoy cartoon adventures. You control Sly Cooper, a raccoon who comes from a family of hereditary thieves.

Together with Sly you travel through an animated universe with anthropomorphic animals. You can also manage his family members and friends.

You are trying to assemble a gang of thieves to restore the legendary book “Thievius Raccoonus” together. The energetic dynamics combined with the “Disney” style makes Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time not only an extremely entertaining adventure game, but also one of the best stealth games. Fans of the franchise have been waiting for a game about an enterprising raccoon, adapted for a mobile device, to appear on the Play Store.

Best stealth mechanic – Dishonored 2

In this Arkane Studios creation, the sequel to the popular stealth game Dishonored, you once again play as supernatural assassins Emily or her father Corvo Attano. You can choose any character.

Each of them has their own skills, thanks to which the battle scenes amaze the imagination. Whoever you play as, you have one single goal – to regain the throne.

Dishonored 2 is one of the best stealth games of all time thanks to its outstanding mechanics. The story is non-linear and you can move forward and backward in time.

If you don’t know what a stealth game is, you should probably start with this genre. The only pity is that this is not the kind of game that you can download to your phone for free at any time.
