There is nothing more satisfying than sneaking into room, taking out an unsuspecting guard and then leaving without a trace. Over the years the stealth genre has managed to incorporate more and more action into proceedings, yet every now and then a truly sneaky title appears out of the shadows. That's why we decided to bring you our top 5 super sneaky games of all time.

The Ship (2007)

The Ship is a clever hybrid of Cluedo, The Sims and stealth action at its finest. This multiplayer romp pitted players against one another, with the aim to kill their mark in secret. Each player would be given the name of their target and their last known whereabouts, and it was up to the player to stalk their mark and kill them in private.


Hitman: Blood Money (2006)

The Hitman series takes the stealth genre somewhere most other titles avoid; rather than hiding from your enemies line of sight the game puts an emphasis on disguises and hiding in plain sight. That's what makes Hitman so exhilarating, and Hitman: Blood Money is by far the best in the series. Featuring the first truly fleshed out story, new mechanics and some of the best gameplay in the series Blood Money deserves to be on your sneaky game checkout list. Also don't forget to clean ze pool!


Mark of the Ninja (2012)

Klei Entertainment have recently released this stealth masterpiece on Xbox Live Arcade and it's coming to Steam very soon. Mark of the Ninja forces gamers to think about their actions before the commit, promoting exploration and forcing you to take refuge in the shadows. Awesome platforming, a number of ninja tools at your disposal and rewards for being super sneaky makes this the stealth hit of the year.


Thief: The Dark Project (1998)

Arguably one of the best single-player experiences of all time, Thief: The Dark Project is a shining example of stealth gameplay. It's steampunk meets medieval aesthetic sets the tone for a game set in the shadows, utilising bows, arrows, daggers and more to solve a series of puzzles and progress through a thrilling story. If you're going to check out just one game from this list, go back and experience this classic.


Metal Gear Solid (1998)

1998 was a good year for the stealth genre, but few games come come close to deliver what Metal Gear Solid provided on the PlayStation. A thrilling story with cinematic quality, along with tactical espionage gameplay that changed the way players though about action titles. There was something else out there, a game that rewarded smart decisions and silent kills to a point where you couldn't survive without them. The original Metal Gear Solid kickstarted an entire new genre, and for that reason alone is deserves a mention in this list.

Can you play through the whole game without killing someone?

Lol? Not sure about the relevance of that, but you know Batman never kills right?
I bought the thief games in the last steam sale but am yet to give them a shot.
I gave up on Deadly Shadiws because I never succeeded in lock-picking.
No Splinter Cell?

What about Trouble in Terrorist Town? Imo, it's better than The Ship...

Really? there are games in the list above that force you to kill :P Asylum/city are definitely stealth titles.

The absence of the original Deus Ex is a travesty though [Facepalm]
No Splinter Cell?
the ship is awesome
The ship? Really?
What about Arkham Asylum, Sly 2 or Splinter Cell? Those are all amazing Stealth games! :@
