I don't have CS: Source yet as I want it on DVD rather than downlaoding it etc and I hence I cannot directly compare CS and Far Cry or Doom III but, you are not giving Far Cry the credit it deserves.
Well I have Far Cry and the graphics are adequate, but the trees still look really damn fake and the models aren't anything super impressive. I wasn't very impressed with the bump mapping, but I never really noticed bump mapping until Doom 3. The 1.3 patch for FC looked pretty neat, but they are apparently taking forever to release it.
In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in innumerable solar systems, there once was a star on which clever animals invented knowledge. That was the highest and most mendacious minute of "world history"—yet only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths the star grew cold, and the clever animals had to die.
