I've never actually seen this magazine, so no sorry.

Since it's a British magazine, perhaps you could try the other forum that Steve linked the other day, it seems to have quite a large number of UK members, may be they would know.
One of the chaps that got some Oric stuff from me has set up a Oric section on the Atari forum pages.

I remember reading this very issue, had it in my hands for months before Oric-1 finally arrived in Australia .. very exciting times. Hope we can find it and get it scanned somehow ..

I have that. I'll see if I can dig it out of the box I think it is in.
I think I have seen this review online elsewhere (?) It was a very early one IIRC.
