Lurking in the shadows, moving from cover to cover and silently sneaking around; stealth games can make you feel like a seasoned ninja, an expert espionage operative or lethal assassin...or Batman...and who doesn't want to be as awesome as Batman?! Here's my top list of stealth games in no particular order:
Not only could you hide in your surroundings but you could also outwit enemies by hiding in cardboard boxes because no one, not even a fully trained guard being paid thousands to safeguard stolen armaments or military technology would think to look inside a cardboard box, least of all one which seemingly moves from one place to the next...nope, not even those guys.
Hiding in boxes and making fools of highly trained operatives isn't the only use of the games environment, stashing bodies and creating makeshift an item and weapons cache...cardboard boxes are essentially a ninja multi-tool...who knew?!
Agent 47 is also a master of disguise and can blend in to any crowd in the right attire. It does detract from the job at hand somewhat when you're dressed in a chicken suit and garrotting your target but that's the joy of the Hitman games, you might be outlandishly dressed but you'll be damned before you find anyone more creative!
To separate itself from the largely action based films this game utilised the character Riddick as he was portrayed in the first 45 minutes of Pitch Black, silently moving amongst the shipwrecked survivors and stealing from them with complete ease.
From there the films became more about his strength, however the game focuses solely on the shadow dwelling silent assassin! Also....did I mention VIN DIESEL!
