RotTR does have a more realistic artstyle, but technically the only thing it does better is character rendering and arguably lighting (though SotTR's is more consistent). SotTR excels in environment rendering and has a better post effect pipeline. It does go for a more stylistic direction, which while not necessarily worse, it makes things look a bit more unrealistic. Personally I prefer the look of SotTR, even when going back and forth the two games.
