Top 10 Best Stealth Games Of All Time – Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of Top 10 Best Stealth Games Of All Time. This list will bring you some of the Best Stealth Games for PCs and Consoles. Enough introduction! Well, let’s go to the list.
10. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided | Released on 23 Aug 2016 on Windows/macOS/ PS4
The action role-playing stealth game is set in a futuristic world of 2029 after a fictional Human Revolution. Mankind is divided into two categories, normal humans and humans with advanced and controversial artificial organs said to be augmentations. The augmented humans have been segregated and now it’s a heated environment all around.
In the game, you will be controlling the main protagonist, Adam Jensen, equipped with advanced new augmentations after the human revolution. Jensen is a double agent for the hacker group Juggernaut Collective to expose the Illuminati. Fight those cruel humans with your preferred style; go gun blazing in the crowd or navigate through covers to complete missions.
Along with the main story, the player can take part in side quests to earn experience points to unlock new weapons, abilities, and equipment. There is also a breach mode where you will be hacking the Palisade bank data. But for what? Find out!
9. Splinter Cell: Blacklist | Released on 20 Aug 2013 on Windows/PS3/Xbox 360
Splinter Cell: Blacklist is a picture-perfect stealth game published by Ubisoft in 2013. The game looks quite simple, you need to complete missions and objectives. However, the return of the asymmetrical multiplayer mode Spies Vs. Mercs adds to the fun.
In the game, you play the role of Sam Fisher, a spymaster working for the Fourth Echelon. You must stop the Engineers, a group of terrorists, from coercing the United States into recalling their troops, anyhow. You wanna go aggressive or sneaky. The choice is yours. You can either complete missions using the stealth feature and by not being noticed by the enemies or simply by taking them down.
For me, the second one works well! Catch enemies and interrogate them to know hidden secrets, and whether you spare them or kill them after that, it’s all on your mood! I go the second way!
8. Alien: Isolation | Released on 7 Oct 2014 on PS4/Switch/Windows
Alien: Isolation is a survival-based horror game that is based on the original Alien film series of 1979. The players take control of Amanda Ripley, the daughter of the protagonist of the Alien film, Ellen Ripley. Her mother has disappeared aboard the space station Sevastopol and she must find a way to get out of there.
Explore the space station while escaping, outsmarting, and fighting enemy aliens, hostile humans, and androids all while keeping yourself away from the Alien pursuing you everywhere. He can’t be defeated. And all you can do is use the flashlight or the motion tracker to keep track of him, that’s it!
I would love the game much more if there were a love story in the game, but just like my personal life, I don’t have one here as well. Haha!
7. Dishonored 2 | Released on 11 Nov 2016 on Windows/PS4/Xbox One
