Thicker should be less likly to crack so it should be fine.

Some of the hand made subway tiles from Spain and Italy are thick like that---they looks good--make sure you have matching bullnose and you are good to go.

When I re-tiled our shower (only my second tiling project) I used 1/4" porcelain floor tile, and installing our shower control was close. Plan ahead and make sure your plumbing will work with tile that thick.
