1.0 out of 5 stars This is Terrible !!! May 1, 2010
By Visa
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the worst game compilation that i have ever played let alone looked at. The cartridge has 52 games on it and all of them are awful. It may not seem possible but the programmers have somehow messed up all 52 games with bad graphics, terrible music, and horrid controls. Most of the game do not work and the ones that do are either impossible to beat or impossible to lose. If u like terrible games buy this. If you are any person who plays video games STAY AWAY FROM THIS CARTRIDGE!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst game ever made in history! May 1, 2010

52 useless, pathetic, horrible, unplayable games. All with horrid sound, graphics, gameplay, or even playability. I hope whoever made this game is rotting in hell.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous collection November 23, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Action 52 is the strangest unlicensed NES game ever. The cartridge is clear, and it gets warmer after playing it about an hour (That is, if you would wanna play this trash). Even stranger, it costs a whopping $200. Is it worth it? No, and it never will be.

52 games sounds like a lot, but you would play them just for the amusement of how bad they are, not because they're fun.

All the games suffer from lack of decent gameplay, sounds, music, imagination, graphics, and the fun factor.

One game actually crashes, so we can never be able to play it.

Some games are impossible to finish.

Some are extremely easy.

I think all this should already be able to explain to you not to buy this.

Everyone knows Action 52 consists of 52 games, only 49 work, 1 game is the notorious Cheetahmen 1, and most of which are just cheap copies of each other, but looks you get on people's faces when they see this for the first time is priceless.

I like how the opening music is just "IT TAKES TWO"

Anyway, the best way to review crap of this magnitude is with pictures. Check out the picture gallery to see what all the games looks like. 3 of them are just titles because they don't actually work. I have many pictures for Cheetahmen. The comments on the pictures are geared mostly towards gamers who have played many NES games.

EDIT: I added more pictures for this game for Cheetahmen. I played all the way up to stage 5 (the game is really hard to play as the character with the crossbow) and added as many images as I can. I will be completely honest with this game. Cheetahmen would be amazing had it been programmed well. The thing that kills it for me really is that there are no continues, no indication of getting extra lives, no HP power-ups, and hard to tell who is hitting who in this game. I have noticed that in Cheetahmen 2 player mode, both players progress through the game as they switch turns except for the first level. If player 1 dies on stage 2 and player 2 dies on stage 4, player 1 starts on stage 4 also. In most of the 2 player games like the space shooters, player 2 is usually a glitched mess. I added pictures to display this. This game is pricey, but try it for Cheetahmen's sake!

5.0 out of 5 stars ACTION 52 - LOVE TO HATE IT!!! August 7, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR $199?? GAMES THAT ACTUALLY PLAY TOO?

YES, IT MAY HAVE A FEW GLITCHES, BUT THERE IS NO GAME ON EARTH THAT EVOKES SUCH STRONG FEELING
OF HATE OR RAGE. HOW CAN YOU REALLY THINK BADLY OF IT?

AND MOST IMPORTANT, EVEN IF THE FIRST 51 GAMES AREN'T EXACTLY PERFECT, CHEETAHMEN MAKES UP FOR THE EARLY MESS, RIGHT?

THE $199 IS WORTH IT JUST FOR THE CHEETAHMEN- WITHOUT ACTION 52 THERE WOULD BE NO CHEETAHMEN II... THEN WHAT
WOULD YA' DO?

AN UNOPENED COPY OF ACTION 52 @$500; AN UNOPENED COPY OF CHEETAHMEN II @ $1,200. MUST BE SOMETHING REAL GOOD
ABOUT THEM BOTH!
