"Hiei" is a symmetrical capture the flag level for Unreal Tournament 3 inspired by legends of the warring monks of Mount Hiei, near Kyoto, Japan. Designed for balanced play, players can take a variety of routes across three elevations to and from the opposing team's flag. "Hiei" gets more intense once jump boots are factored into the equation.
