    Hey ppl!

    I'm looking for a good stealth action-type game for the DS.
    I tried Tenchu, but that sucked.
    Is there anything out there akin to Metal Gear Solid on the Gameboy Color?

    Try Lunar Knights, it's part of the Boktai series(which you should try) which involved a lot of stealth.



    Oh and it's by Kojima Productions.

    Well, Lunar Knights was more of a Children of Mana-type approach. I played through about 10 hours of it, but don't recall any stealth gameplay in it.

    Really, I don't know of anything on DS right now that offers what you're probably looking for. I love Tenchu, but yeah, Dark Secrets was not a real Tenchu game. I still had some fun with it, but it's far from what could have and should have been done with the game.

    Honestly, I wouldn't expect anything in the near future, either, since stealth-action seems to have fallen out of favor with most gamers. The consoles are still the only place to find a good one.

    I really hope they release a Hitman game for the DS simultaneously or post Hitman 5.

    Over the Hedge DS is a stealth game that got some praise. I never really got into it, but you might want to try it out.

    Splinter Cell DS was considered pretty bad due to the terrible framerate. I sort of liked it a bit.

    It's the Boktai series on GBA that had the stealth. Lunar Knights pretty much scrapped all that.

    Yea...the stealth in the boktai series usually was serious enough (only used in situations) where if you get found or noticed, its either instant game over or mission restart, death, or massive loss of health/energy. You seriously should pick up the boktai's >_>, best gba stealth games ever.

    Yep! [​IMG] Too bad the third game in the series was never localized though. [​IMG] Maybe someone will translate it someday.

    Commandos (the PC game) would be cool on the DS.

    It's part of the Boktai series(which used stealth). But it's pretty much optional in Lunar Knights and doesn't help much. This is pretty much what the other posts said if you read them.

    I played through it and didn't use stealth. Its obviously very optional.

    Well, I played through all of Over The Hedge, and though the basics have to do with remaining unseen, there are no real stealth mechanics. I wouldn't call it a stealth-action game at all. Good game, though, but more of a puzzle platformer.

    Splinter Cell, on the other hand, was poor (in my opinion) because of it's control set-up. It was almost laid out like a PC version, and on the DS it was clumsy as all hell. The frame rate was forgivable, but I couldn't tolerate the controls for long.
