Only human is not good enough. Want to be stronger? Faster? Smarter? You can, provided you are willing to pay the price... your humanity.
Cybernetics allow you to punch harder, shoot straighter, run faster, and even think better. And if that's not enough, you can become a full-conversion cyborg, sacrificing mere meat for cutting-edge machine.
You might opt for a genetic upgrade, a reworking of your DNA with the intent of "fixing" all of nature's mistakes. Or you might be a replicated human, vat-grown and computer-designed for a specific purpose.
Still not satisfied? You can take on the role of an esper, a living weapon with powerful psychokinetic abilities.
