Yeah I have the least amount of time played in AC:CF. It certainly felt like it had less "love" poured into it than the others. They didn't compose new hourly music, there wasn't much done with the Wii's motion controls, they reverted to AC:GC's 3-bedroom system instead of AC:WW's 6, and there wasn't as much new and exciting stuff; Wild World introduced hairdos, hats, and accessories, and AC:CF introduced "change the color of your shoes".
I also didn't like how untalkative the animals were, if you spoke to them, they'd just repeat the same "follow-up" to their initial conversation for a long time (until you save & quit? I don't remember).
Grass wear -- enough said.
I do remember the developers talking about WiiConnect24 and how, "for example", it'd let you visit a friend's town 24/7. I feel like a ton of research+development was put into ideas that just didn't happen for one reason or another, and as a result, we're left with a game that's one of the smallest "upgrades" (outside of Japan) in AC history.
i mean, ok. are you capable of saying anything thats not absurdly negative?
I like City Folk. I made this account when I was 12 and at the time I wasn't exactly creative and mature when it came to creating usernames, so I wouldn't say I love the game anymore. But it's certainly better than Wild World. Like, Wild World is the worst Animal Crossing game imo by an absolute long shot - there is nothing about it as an experience you can't get out of any other game in the franchise, and they all have more to offer too. Wild World was the kind of game you took to summer camp with you when you had to leave your Gamecube at home.
I'd say City Folk on the other hand was about equal to GC, mainly because it basically is ACGC with less charm, less holidays but way more Quality of Life. There's some aspects of GC now that render it unplayable for me because they're so awkward and dated (storage, anyone?) even though the game is brilliantly charming and melts my heart.

City Folk is better than Wild World if you were to pick up the two of them for the first time today. At the time they were released though? Wild World was a huge step forward for the series. City Folk was basically a port. I have much fonder memories of Wild World than City Folk.

I completely disagree with your opinion on WW and CF's music being bad, it is upon some of the best in the series in my opinion. But go on, be a negative nancy, I won't stop you All you do is complain, complain, complain. You have made MULTIPLE threads bashing ACNH like wow, we get it, you don't like the game, no need to tell us a million times. Granted you haven't been active since January, but still, it's incredibly annoying seeing fanboys being this toxic.

I played the heck out of Wild World as a kid, and I'm enjoying it recently, but I would agree now that that is the worst game. I loved the graphics of City Folk and how the houses look, I think that there are clever ways to use the Wii controller and actually, the way you can use the motion controls is a good "replica" of how you can use the stylus in Wild World (ex. you can play either with buttons or stylus/motion). There isn't much to do in the city, but I love it as an addition and that's one of the charms I love about City Folk (each game has its own charm and/or features that make me feel nostalgic). Obviously, we did what we could with the DS and what they gave us, but having an upgraded version in City Folk is great. Neither of them can keep my attention very long now (1. as an adult and 2. being older games with less features; I love the nostalgia of GameCube too but there is only so much to do ... in hindsight, not sure how that kept us occupied for so long as kids ) The lack of holidays and excitement and nowhere else to go and the manned gate with surrounding walls makes it feel like Wild World is a small, almost trapped town lol, at least we did have the city in City Folk.
