Bug report: Warlords by Century:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=12220
links to a Crash review for a different game:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php ... 87&page=92
^ That's Warlord by Interceptor Systems (not Warlords by Interceptor Micros as Crash have it)

so the Crash review link should be removed from Warlords by Century.

I've checked that Warlord by Interceptor Systems links to this Crash review and it does:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=7173

These references for Hercules (2298):
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php ... 76&page=18
http://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php? ... 15&page=15
should be deleted as they are for for Hercules: Slayer of the Damned (2299).

This one needs adding to Hercules: Slayer of the Damned (2299)
http://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php? ... 15&page=15



The single reference for Orpheus (10018):
http://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php? ... 72&page=91
should be deleted as it is for a different Orpheus (10019) and is already listed on that entry.

This reference for Space Ace (12091)
http://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php? ... 2&page=120
should be deleted as it is for the Space Ace compilation (12092) and is already listed on that entry.

Whilst I've got my corrections head on here's a few missing or incorrectly flagged reviews from The Games Machine that I've been going through recently.

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php ... 89&page=50
Wizball (5713) - Issue 1, Page 50. This is flagged as News/Note when IMO it should be flagged as a Review. It's got an Overall score which in my mind makes it a review.

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php ... 98&page=50
Marauder (3030) - Issue 10, Page 50. Missing.

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php ... 99&page=78
Summer Games (4990), Issue 11, Page 78. Missing.

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php ... 99&page=80
Summer Games 2 (4992), Issue 11, Page 80. Missing.

The following are all flagged as being reviewed in C&VG Issue 93. They were not reviewed in this issue, and I guess they're flagged against the wrong magazine as, apart from Thunderbirds and Infiltrator, C&VG didn't review any of them.
Shinobi (44457) Page 16
Thunderbirds (5255) Page 48
Super Scramble Simulator (5034) Page 51
Mr Heli (3310) Page 66
Kosmos (2760) Page 82
Ninja Commando (3434) Page 82
Arcade Flight Simulator (9304) Page 83
Bomb Jack 2 (619) Page 83
Infiltrator (2482) Page 83

Here's a really early one:
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=10096
Pyramid of Doom (10096), C&VG Issue 3 Page 62
This was in the January 1982 issue - the Spectrum wasn't even for sale at this time. The review doesn't even exist in that issue anyway, so I guess it's flagged against the wrong magazine.

@PeterJ I've also noticed that the links to the C&VG scans aren't working.
