I understand Valve is making the sites who got advance copies to review hold the online reviews until release day, but print reviews are already going out. Here are some scans of the PC Gamer review. They gave it a whopping 96%, and the reviewer is literally gushing over the quality of the game. Enjoy.

KU, I am assuming you're using Internet Explorer? If so, go to Tools->Internet Options->Advanced, and under the Multimedia heading, you'll see a checkbox for "Enable automatic image resizing". Uncheck that box.

That's because too many people across the web have been looking at that site and now that guy's server bandwidth has gone over for the month.

Doesn't suprise me. I knew I should have copied the .jpgs when I had the chance. I couldn't have hosted them myself (my ISP limits me to 150kb picture size), but if anyone had the capability, I could have sent them on. Oh well, they say hindsight is always 20/20.

<Edit>Ok, I originally found the link on Anandtech. I was there just now, and the link has been updated. Someone had created a mirror for them, but had to take it down due to vast bandwidth usage. He has created torrents of the individual pictures and a .pdf of the entire review. Go here for the links, if you want to download it that way.
