I'd say that is false. Obviously the CPC can handle action games at good framerates (see Edge Grinder).
The question is just how much stuff you can show before losing too many frames a second for it to be playable.

I'm convinced the ZX-Spectrum, Amstrad (especially since it turns out to be able to trick hardware scrolling), etc can all do 50Hz action games. They'll just have less stuff moving on screen compared to the ones on systems with more hardware support.

Oh and I am definitely a C64 fan and never owned an Amstrad so it's not a fanboy speaking here
