    In XCOM, the drawback of a sniper rifle (barring special skills) is that you can't move before shooting.
    That neatly models that aiming a long rifle with a scope is generally slower.

    I like that.

    Aliens can attack you without requiring LOS (with psionics) while you cannot fight back.

    Arguably that's cheating but if you're not cheating, you're not trying hard enough. =)
