I don't care about AAA or any silly 'title' like that. My main reason for purchasing any game for any platform is usually replay value. If a game isn't going to offer me replay value than I will just rent it and beat it and forget about it. This game looks fantastic and I'm sure the story is great but I've heard its short and there isn't any replay value. So I'll be renting it and if I find that it isn't scripted and has replay value then maybe I'll buy it but it doesn't look that way :)
edit: now I see that by 'AAA' you meant the review scores and not the production value. I don't read any reviews for games since I like to experience them myself and make up my own mind. That's why I pay the rental fee for game fly ;) I agree that way too many casual gamers these days read reviews and base their opinion off of that and also won't touch games that don't have super shiny graphics and are generic franchises. There are so many hidden gems that go under rated and under appreciated that its quite sad. Its obvious this is why the industry is going down the road it is.
