MAFIA II WINS "BEST IN SHOW" AND 2K CZECH WINS "BEST DEVELOPER" AT GAMESCOM

Mafia II took GamesCom by storm this year, winning "Best in Show" in the PC category. IGN said, "It takes a special game to oust the might of Blizzard's collective efforts and Splash Damage's mould-breaking Brink — yet Mafia II is very much that game. 2K Czech has wowed is before with its intricate rendition of post-war America and, already, we've seen a game that offers an unparalleled sense of time and place. In Cologne, Mafia II stunned with the depth of its open world and the possibilities within, flagging up Mafia II as one of 2010's potential highlights."


2K Czech also took home the very prestigious award of "Best Developer." Congratulations to the entire team for their awesome work!
