Some confusion here

On what constitutes a FPS.

Just because Robocop 3 uses plain polygons instead of vectored bitmaps doesn't detract from the fact that its a FPS.

FPS means FIRST PERSON SHOOTER, i.e. the perspective you see is what you would see if you were in that environment.

The graphical representation is utterly irrelevant, and from a gaming viewpoint, the Robocop 3 engine has more varied scope than the Doom engine could possibly hope to have.

FPS is defined by how you are represented in the game, christ, even 3D Pacman on the BBC Model B could be considered FPS.
