DescriptionThere is indeed no second prize in this race between 6 of the world’s toughest riders. First prize is the one remaining model of the greatest motorbike the world has ever seen, incidentally.
The graphics are polygon based, with lots of roadside detail, and leaning into corners to maximise turn-in leads to the graphics to tilt appropriately. The control is mouse-based, allowing for slight adjustments to be made and ensuring that the controls are realistic but not impossible. As well as your five rivals, there are lots of Sunday riders on the roads, distinguished by having brown bikes, so make sure to avoid these.
This was one of the first games to feature video-style replays, allowing you to find the exact moment you want to replay, from any part of the race, and view it at normal speed, double-speed, or freeze-frame. The camera angles on offer here include one that follows the bike, one that views the track from the side, and a TV-style chase view.

MusicAs Jochen Hippel had left Thalion at the time of the release of No Second Prize, Matthias Steinwachs created the musical score for the game. But Hippel had worked on the music for the game. On his 1990 studio album "Give it a try", which featured remixes of his work for Thalion, a song called "Glory" is included, which is marked as No Second Prize title music.
