I noticed that some external content references, such as a game's Critics Reviews, are not necessarily linked to the actual [original on-line and available] referenced content.

For example **: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/xbox360/681989-lightning-returns-final-fantasy-xiii/critic
Eurogamer, https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-02-11-lightning-returns-final-fantasy-13-review
Joystiq (re-branded as Engadget), https://www.engadget.com/2014/02/11/lightning-returns-final-fantasy-xiii-review-dress-to-impress/

** Currently, these reviews are referenced and linked at MetaCritic.

If such references can be improved by being corrected in a maintenance update, whether for completeness, convenience, or consistency, they probably should be.

[ A low maintenance solution would be remove individual review links but leave the references--let gamers use MetaCritic for reviews and GameRankings for rankings. ]
.

Thanks.

P.S.: Is there any other way for GameFAQs members to report or submit suggestions for external content references (to be added, corrected, or improved)?

As far as I know, GameFAQs pulls these things automatically from sites somehow. There used to be a means to submit additional critic reviews but it got taken down a while back, presumably due to lack of use on the part of contributors.
See me on Discord! ^.^
