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.
At 1600x1200 cs:s is prettier than far cry. The water effect is arguably more convincing, but what makes the difference is the texture resolution, cs:s is a lot sharper at higher resolutions. Far cry has good textures but i think it's due to the difference in the map sizes of the games that cs:s can fit in fewer but higher resolution textures.
