Essentially the same as it's ST counterpart, but with more sound and more colourful graphics. A luvverly game.

Amiga Joker (Nov, 1990)
Es ist schon erstaunlich, wie Assembly Line aus den Zutaten von "E-Motion" ein komplett neues Game fabriziert hat. So simple das Spielprinzip auch sein mag, die Präsentation ist allemal mitreißend, und wer sich erstmal mit dem Vaxine-Fieber infiziert hat, ist rettungslos verloren!

Amiga Format (Nov, 1990)
Conditions are terrible, it is five to a cell! That cry will be herd the length and breadth of the country any day now. Thing is, it won’t be prisoners complaining about conditions, but your very own body. Unknown, unseen and unexpected a virus is attacking mankind, but luckily the Assembly Line has come up with the Vaxine.

Raze (Dec, 1990)
Gameplay identical to the Atari ST, but full use is made of the Amiga's enhanced colour and sound capabilities, giving Vaxine even more visual effect - as if it needed it.

Power Play (Dec, 1990)
Laßt Euch bloß nicht von der kauzigen Hintergrundgeschichte verwirren. Im Prinzip ist Vaxine nichts weiter als ein pfeilschnelles Rumflitz- und Abknallspiel mit Pfiff. Die tadellos schnelle 3D-Grafik in Verbindung mit über 100 Farbabstufungen, die gleichzeitig zu sehen sind, machen das Programm ausgesprochen attraktiv. Und weil alles so schön schneidig-schnell abläuft und die Steuerung flüssig ist, macht Vaxine Spaß. Man kommt spontan mit dem Spiel zurecht und wirft fröhlich mit Virenkillerkugeln um sich. Auf Dauer wird kaum etwas neues geboten, so daß die Langzeitmotivation nicht ganz so toll ist.

Zzap! (Nov, 1990)
Every day you come under attack from fearless enemy agents, attempting to destroy your defences and kill you! But this isn't some paranoid fantasy, it's all true and happening as you read this: the skin-crawling facts of your body's war against invading virus cells. Which isn't to say the inside of your body looks like a multi-directional scrolling playfield with ray traced graphics, but merely that The Assembly Line have written a novel scenario for their E-Motion follow-up.

Amiga Power (May, 1991)
Beautiful-looking, original and imaginative shoot 'em up. Very, very, very (very) hard. Be prepared to tear your hair out.
 
Both IBM and Amiga versions of Vaxine will install on a hard drive — a rare treat for Amiga owners for whom European arcade games almost never make this concession. Copy protection is via a non-reproducible code wheel which uses black printing on black cardboard. Vaxine is clearly a product for hard-core arcade fanatics who enjoy wonderfully abstract graphics. Sensitive students of biology and immunology (and Evan Brooks) should avoid even reading the manual.
