That's a great comparison. I find it amazing that anyone can watch that video and suggest that Crysis has better graphics than FC3, yet judging by the comments there clearly are people who believe that. I honestly don't understand it.

As a whole, FC3 is a nice-looking game but I wouldn't call it great-looking. I definitely don't think it looks better than Infinite based on what I've seen of both.
I can't take you seriously when you make comments like that.

Looking at the gameplay videos of Bioshock Infinite, like this one, it's clear it's not even close to FC3 / Crysis levels. It looks like Yet Another UE3 Game™. And the gameplay really doesn't look too hot either, especially not after games like Dishonored and FC3.

I really enjoyed Bioshock but this game just doesn't excite me as much as it should. The gameplay looks quite dated and far too scripted.

From a technical standpoint, Crysis does have better graphics than FC3. The textures are much higher-res, the foliage is more lush and the environments are far more interactive (trees and shacks can be completely destroyed, most objects have physics, etc).

If we're talking about art direction, then FC3 is definitely more vibrant and vivid than Crysis, which was relatively desaturated. However, if we're talking purely about art direction, I have no idea how you can think FC3 looks better than Infinite. FC3 takes place in a relatively bland tropical environment. It looks nice but it's not particularly memorable, since a lot of games have used the same setting and visual style. Infinite's setting and art style are far more unique and memorable.

The fact that you automatically dismiss Infinite as "Yet Another UE3 Game" makes it hard to take you seriously. There are tons of UE3 games out there that have completely distinct visual styles. Mirror's Edge, Arkham City, Bioshock Infinite, Dishonored, Tribes Ascend, Mass Effect, Alice: Madness Returns, Borderlands, Deadlight, Lollipop Chainsaw, Mortal Kombat, Super Monday Night Combat, Asura's Wrath... if you honestly think these games all look the same, I'm not sure what to say.

You really should check out the latest Infinite screenshots if you haven't already: New screens
