I've been looking for scans of this magazine for years. It had some pretty good material. How come there isn't an archive of this great magazine online? Recently I found two scans but little else. Also note that the magazine was later renamed simply Computer Games
http://www.oldgamemags.com/computers/ibm-pc/computer-games-strategy-plus/
Also, it may or may not interest people to know that there was once an active archive of this magazine at cgonline.com , where several thousand articles were stored from back issues. A server crash or something occurred about 1 year ago, in early 2013, and the entire archive was wiped out. Damn shame. Some reviews, both old and more recent, were pure genius.

Seeings as there isn't any activity on this subject i decided to post some screenshots on several CGSP scans i found, in case anyone should be looking for them, and a source page where you can download several full scans of various vintage magazines (including old issues of PC gamer). they aren't pdf's so you will need some spare time to download them
