It's a bit of a fad yes, but it's not "here to stay" either, is it?
i mean, once polygon budgets go up, normal maps will be used much more subtle, instead of the way it's being done now...
it'll be used mostly as a way to create the illusion of skinfolds at the eyes, or scars, and such things.
Also, the texture looks pretty good, although i agree with whoever said it was a bit too dark in places (especially on the chest)
The flesh looks pretty good, but it looks a bit fake, because of the red tone to the darker bits (try adding a bit of green to that, or blue, but not too much... and definately make it less saturated)
The legs are a bit odd as well, but i can't excactly tell you why that is...
