Too much of pretty much anything can be a bad thing.
The recommended does is generally between 5-20g a day and the only common complaint is the increased water retention which isn't really a real issue. You'd hold a bit more water but be able to train more effectively.
Healthy kidneys are from what we know can handle the creatinine break down from that kind of creatine intake.
Sure that might change with higher doses, but honestly there isn't much reason to dose like that. I use 10g and don't think there's much point in dosing higher
