Top 10 Worst Stealth Sections In Video Games

Creating stealth sections in video games is a lot like preparing fugu, or as it’s commonly known as blowfish. If done right, it can enhance the whole experience making it more fun. But if the developers make even one mistake, it can do a lot of damage, turning it into a nasty experience in an otherwise fun game. Sometimes they do it right, but more often than not, they just destroy the whole experience. Here are some of the worst offenders.

3 Arsenal Gear - Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Yes, even Hideo Kojima has his off-days. When Raiden is betrayed by the same hero he thought he could trust, he wakes up strapped to a machine and completely naked. When you regain control of Raiden, he has none of his items so he has to make do with what he finds along the way. Not to mention that he holds his unmentionables the entire time, even while fighting. This might be over quickly if you know what you’re doing, but seeing Raiden in his birthday suit is a sight we never want to behold again. - raidramon0

4 Madd Dogg's Rhyme's - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

It took many tries for me to complete this mission.
I really like it though. - Skullkid755

5 Breaking and Entering - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

This has got to be the worst stealth section in the Uncharted series to date. Here, Nate and Flynn sneak into a museum in Borneo to recover a lamp and there are guards everywhere. They can only use their fists and the environment to subdue the rent-a-cops patrolling the area. It’s not exactly Naughty Dog’s finest stealth section here as it’s easy to get spotted if you and Flynn aren’t on the same page. But what’s really annoying is that you get a tranquilizer gun after you finish the hardest section. Yes, Flynn had it on him the whole time. Good grief. At least when you play a New Game+, you can obtain the gun through some cheat codes. - raidramon0

6 Royal Palace - Final Fantasy Xii V 1 Comment
7 Episode 4: The Hekseville Phantom - Gravity Rush

Early on in this otherwise fun game, Kat has to sneak by some guards to switch a piece of candy with the Sacred Gem and give to Syd. But it’s not as simple as it sounds. In addition to the ground troops, you also have to watch out for air patrols and the alert levels fills up real fast when they see you. You also have to be wary of areas under heavy guard because the alert level will fill up instantly if you get too close to them. You have to swap out the gem for candy and give it to Syd while evading detection the entire time. Not exactly the best way to kick off a game. - raidramon0
