“the jump between space battles, ground battles and strategy elements are just about perfect.”
92%. – Space Sim Central

“Salvation Prophecy has some of the best non-scripted battles in any space adventure game”
6/8 – Out of Eight PC Game Reviews

“It's not just unique but the amount of gameplay features and scope of the game had me taken aback because even big budget AAA games usually don't include the amount of content present in Salvation Prophecy.”

I really want to like Salvation Prophecy. It has an amazing concept, a really good storyline with two distinct endings, and plenty of great lore. However, I can't like it. The beginning of the game? Awful. It's mostly grindy, you feel very not powerful, and the like. The middle? Amazingly fun, complex tactical simulation. The ending? Tedious, and even more grindy than the beginning. Without spoiling anything, you can spend the entire game carefully building up an entire empire only to watch it be tore down, with little you can do. Some of the most fun I've had in recent gaming history has been in the middle section of this game, but I honestly don't feel like I can recommend it.

In addition to my other hesitations, the game is very glitchy. There are also missions exclusive to sections of the game, with know way of knowing in advance which missions will vanish. I had to replay the campign just to get some achievements that I missed because I didn't realize the missions would be inaccessible later. The graphics are also wanting, with absolutely no customization available -- and it definitely feels like it's missing.

Overall, Salvation Prophecy is an amazing attempt. I feel like if it had been given the funding it needed, it could have become an amazing game, similar in caliber to the other space epics but distinct, bringing its own unique perspective on the space sim. But it wasn't. It felt far too much like an indie game that desperately wanted to become something mainstream, it just needed the funding.

Thoroughly enjoying this game, despite some small flaws. The graphics are sub-par and the difficulty spike in the first space battles is extreme, but the gameplay is enjoyable and I don't think it deserves as many of the negative reviews as it has. If it's on sale, I highly recommend buying this game, though I personally wouldn't pay over $10USD for it.

This is a great game to play casually. Space and planetside missions. It has some nice features but it isn't top notch. Get this when it's on sale, it ain't worth full price but it's great for say 5 dollar/euro.

8,5/10

This game is possibly one of the most overlooked jewels among indie titles on tiny budgets.

I totally recommend it for purchase if you are in space rpg + space fighter combo games.
Totally worth supporting developer, this one was created on a very thin budget and it shows - Salvation Prophecy is a jewel, but rough around the edges.

Let me give you a quick summary:

Graphics:
- Indie budgets shows right away. Textures are low res, location are reused, models are ridiculous sometimes.
- Animations are hilarious

+ Space combat effects are decent
+ Very few obvious bugs to speak about
+ unique planetary missions have amazing locations

Sound:
- your own music recommended
- voice acting is ridiculous
- actually not that many sound effects

+ doesn't get annoying
+ space travel effects amazing
+ no bugs detected
+ ambient sound effects help immersion

Gameplay:
- simplistic in every area
- little choice of items, most useless
- difficult to understand why are you promoted to faction leader so soon
- otherwise unbalanced (AI and Aliens)
- land combat AI sucks (worst part of the game actually)
- shallow story line, some ridiculous moments especially with runes
- arcade minigames in warp tunnels and wormholes

+ story is presented in interesting manner and despite being quite simple is properly explained and transparent, you can tell the reason for the ongoing war
+ missions. Mass fighter jumping in and out of combat is just the most amazing thing this game has (I say this as FreeSpace veteran)
+ simplified arcade combat - not necessary a good thing but at least it is made in proper way (does not annoy)
+ side missions, hilarious pirate descriptions
+ multiple aspects (well, not that many) of faction to manage
+ ending better than Mass Effect 3, despite very ♥♥♥♥♥♥ final boss battle(considering mission length this battle is actually a good thing)
+ overal feeling and atmosphere is a combined shadow of Homeworld, FreeSpace and Mass Effect titles. It is quite simply good.


Conclusion:
Love and care is visible in each and every part of the title. It is properly done, relativelly bug free, not badly imbalanced jewel that makes it obvious - developers really wanted to deliver but were short on funds. These are the pople who seem to know what they are doing and where they are heading, just didn't head the means to make the journey.


You will not be disappointed if you get this game on sale, even tho it is short you will enjoy this.

And perhaps showing your support will prompt people responsible for Salvation Prophecy to create a sequel.
