Brad of The Daily Rotation wrote, "In Thus Spoke Zarathustra, German Philosopher Frederich Nietzsche introduced his concept of the Übermensch (or, the superman/overman). He described this post-god character as one who is willing to abandon his urges to nihilism and sacrifice everything to advance humanity. To Nietzsche, the man who takes the needs of his species survival over his own was the next step in human evolution. In Crysis 3, the human/alien hybrid super solider Prophet is something of a living superman. His fellow humans are powerless against the forces of an invading alien military, but the nanotech biosuit bonded to his skin elevates him to a nearly indestructible creature. With this power, he faces an Übermensch like dilemma: would you sacrifice everything to save your species?"
