I guess I'll fifth that. We gotta get Critic to review Action 52!



Action 52 is the worst game ever just because it originally retailed for $199. Imagine if your parents bought you Action 52 as a kid and then replied with "But you already have 52 games!" when you asked for any other games.


Wasn't the Action 52 directed at the rental market? Now, if your parents bought it when the local video store was trying to get rid of it for $99 you'd have a problem.

No. It was a regular NES game that was sold in stores and originally retailed for $199. It was supposed to be a "good deal" because that's only around $4 per game. They were also hoping to merchandise the heck out of the Cheetahmen but of course the game was a huge flop so that didn't happen.

They even made a TV commercial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWXOQD-VAmY

Are you sure this game can't be given an F+ based entirely on the fact that the game has a nice looking label on the disk? Maybe the cursor moves fairly smooth when you give your skier a name? A solitary hot chick back at the ski lodge perhaps?


That's what D- is for. The game has some redeeming quality so that it's not a complete fail.


No, D+ is barely playable. F+ is for an absolute abortion with only an irrelevant touch that they managed not to screw up.
