Action 52 (NES) - Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN)

  • Published on Jul 22, 2011
  • Action 52 was created by Active Enterprises released in 1991 for the NES and a 1993 port for the sega Genesis. Action 52 was a compilation of games mostly filler and many with similar objectives. Plenty of duplicate titles with very minor differences, the game itself was incredibly broken with many glitches leaving quite a few of the titles unplayable. The main title of the cart being Cheetah men which was intended to feature a possible fresh franchise series that never ended up taking off despite some merchandise and comic books being made. Cheetah men itself was very poorly constructed and contained numerous glitch's such as getting stuck in mid jump on top of poor level design. Plenty of the games on the cart were space shooter's and some games had other issues such as never ending, not being able to win, game freezes, misleading game titles, and numerous other issues which resulted in it's poor reviews.

    Laser is an acronym of Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. So calling it Lazer only makes sense if you spell Stimulated as Ztimulated.

    This "game" feels more like a Homebrew made by a toddler with a small brain. I'd rather play Bill & Ted on NES than Action 52 OR CHEETAHMEN

      This was definitely a 3rd party game. I didn’t see the nintendo seal on what we were shown of the cartridge, so I don’t think this is official either. You could try to find it online, but I can’t assume that it’d be cheap. Like most old games, emulating is your best bet.
