Well, let's not forget that ROTT uses a completely different playing mechanic with unlimited ammo for bullet weapons and limited missile weapons of which only one can be carried. It makes a great impact on the whole playing style.

And no, I don't agree with the "puts to shame" statement either. I believe that the two games are just so drastically different, comparisons are almost useless. It just so happened that Doom has come to represent the mainstream line of the genre, while ROTT can be considered a kind of an "alternative".
