18 Games Like Hitman

Games Like Hitman The stealth games like Hitman on this page offer other opportunities for you to stalk and assassinate targets.

Hitman is one of the original stealth assassination games with a handful of games under its belt across many platforms. The games centre on the adventures of Agent 47 and his struggles with and eventually against his owners. He’s a master of his work with a flawless record of handling sensitive cases in a very efficient manner.

The gameplay through the series is broken down into various levels with a given target or objective for that level that makes use of stealth, assassination (preferably accidental death) and sometimes direct confrontation. These aren’t just stand alone missions though with a linking storyline that connects the people and places together.

Key elements of the game include managing the amount of tension you’re attracting from your surroundings, the removal of bodies and a focus on blending in rather than pure stealth.

The games similar to Hitman here offer other stealth based adventures where you’ll use your skills to hide yourself and take out your desired target.
