Given the fantastically redone counters available, you could, with enough effort, make this game better than it came. (I need to redo mine.)

Not only is it possible, it's simple! Total time to download, print, and cut is about 10 minutes.

Not sure if this qualifies as "highly rated" or not, but is still one of my favs.

Check out http://www.jeloba.com/wizwar/ for a complete setup.

If you search you can get a full list of cards, numbers of and text as well as the rules. The board is as the picture. For such a precious find the pasteup should be easy.

Not sure if you qualify this as a "full game" but the main rulebook and all its supplements are available at http://www.gtns.co.uk .

Tough deduction game.

You can make it yourself, but there are components available here on the geek.

Rules in their entirety, all maps and counters, and TONS of scenarios are avaiable at http://www.relativerange.com/ancients/

A very good introduction to hex-n-counter wargaming.

It's out of print. Whether it's "highly rated" is in the eye of the beholder. But everything needed to make a do-it-yourself copy is available right here in the files section on the 'geek.

Well, I don't know if any of these fall into the "highly rated" category, but Cheapass Games has three downloadable PDF games on their website:

Renfield
Bleeding Sherwood
Huzzah

http://www.cheapass.com/free/index.html

Of the three, I like Renfield; BGG ranks it highest of the three at 5.71. But hey, it's free...
