Europe In Flames is definetly an... intresting scenario. It is evident that it is the author's first work, and it shows some potential, even though the scenario itself was nothing special. It was also very short, only 5 minutes.
Well, I can't say I was exactly intrigued by the cut-scene. It had it's moments, like the dojo and the soldiers there. But it was still a mediocre cut-scene. Especially annoying was the fact that sometimes there were no "Change view" triggers, so you had to move the mouse yourself. Also I couldn't understand, why I had to look at a horse for 30 seconds in the beginning. A 4 here would be way too high of a mark, but it ain't that bad to get a 2 either.
According to the tutorial I rate this 5.
There were a couple of trigger tricks, but they weren't anything special either. No creative map designing to be honest. So it gets a 3- here.
Map Design: 3
The map design had it's moment as well, but still there were large batches of Grass 1 and Road. Almost no eye candy, save for the flowers on the road.
Well, the Guidelines say I must give a 4, though I don't think it really deserves one. There was no history or anything (I know that a cut-scene doesn't need hints or scouts). The story was somewhat clichéd, and easy to see from a mile away.
I don't think this particular scenario is very download worthy, but it is nevertheless a great start for a designer, and shows potential as well. Keep it up, and one day you'll have those 5.0's coming in.
