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.
