Action 52 is an unlicensed video game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The game is infamous for having a price of one hundred ninety-nine dollars, but with a lack of quality. It included, as the name implies, fifty-two different video games they created, with each one rounding out about an estimated $3.8269230769231 each. Nevertheless, the game wasn't critically acclaimed in the gaming community, with almost each game included being low in quality (see above brackets). Nevertheless, the company remade it and released it on the Sega Genesis a couple years later with better graphics and apparently different games. It is also considered the worst NES game by most.

Most of the games included are filled with immense glitches that add to the bad quality of the already unoriginal titles included, which mostly consist of platform and shooting games. The game's sole manual suggested that one could pay one dollar for a manual on one of the games, thus he/she would have to pay fifty two more dollars in order to have all of the instructions. Because the games were unsuccessful, the company Active Enterprises shut down before they were able to release the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version that they had planned.

The game is greatly noted for introducing the would-be franchise "The Cheetahmen". Despite the fact that the game was still low in quality, it is visible that it was developed to be the hallmark of the entire game, featuring far less glitches than the other games, not to mention the 12 page comic book featuring the characters that came packaged with every game. A sequel to Cheetahmen was made, called Cheetahmen 2, but it was never released.
