When Max Payne 2 went on sale for like $3 recently I picked it up and I finally started it up this week.  A few days later I finished it and I immediately started re-playing the original.  I'm in the mood for another game like this:

1. Not too fast-paced: I like being able to go through levels slowly, pausing outside doorways, using cover and taking out a few enemies at a time. An example of the opposite of this would be Metal Arms, where there are open areas and tons of enemies and you are forced to just strafe around. I wound up putting that game down after a few levels.
2. Fun selection of weapons
3. Decent story
4. Not too long (fits my schedule)

Thanks!

edit: added an "other" option.

Save your money and do a google search for "Cinema Mod 1.6" and install that to add tremendous fun to Max Payne 2.

How about Psi-Ops or Second Sight?  The psychic powers act kind of like bullet-time, although with many more effects, they're not too fast-paced, and I don't think either is very long.  They also should both be really cheap.

Psi-Ops was excellent. I played that game through at least three or four times.

Of the ones you list though, Kill.Switch was easily my favorite. That's another one I played through multiple times, and other times I went back and replayed certain levels because they were just plain fun.

I liked kill.switch best of the ones here, as well (though the Bond game wasn't bad, I just never finished and the Hitman series is one that I always think I'm going to like, and then hate the trial and error-ness of it).

I agree, though, that it's looking like the Woo game is the one to get.
