Welcome to the Action 52 Wiki[]

Action 52 is an unlicensed and multi-platform video game compilation. Active Enterprises developed it for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and was released in 1991, while FarSight Technologies developed the lesser-known Sega Genesis version. The Sega Genesis version was released almost two years later, in 1993. A Super NES version was advertised in magazines, but was never released.

The NES version of Action 52 is one of the most infamous video games ever released on any gaming platform for many reasons. Despite offering 52 games in a compilation package that was supposed to be a good value, few, if any, of the games are of good quality. Many gamers consider the compilation a rip-off, because most of the games are subpar compared to a regular Atari 2600 game. Although it cost 199 dollars for 52 games (or roughly four dollars for each game), it still offered far less content, playability, and fun than a normal-priced NES game. It skyrocketed in price after a review by the Angry Video Game Nerd in 2009.

The Genesis version is considered somewhat better, but it still has the core problems that plagued the NES version, like very limited playability and content.
