If you do not want to play through the entire game again on Nightmare or find it too frustrating, you can "cheat" the achievement assuming you have completed the game once already.

Start a New Game + on Nightmare and exit out after the first autosave.
Go to Chapter Select, select the final part of Chapter 1 and complete it.
Play through the beginning of Chapter 2 until the first autosave.
Go to Chapter Select, select the final part of Chapter 2 and complete it.

Repeat the above for every chapter.

I am playing through the game normally on Nightmare so I can't verify, but you likely don't even need to fight the final boss as "The End" checkpoint places you after the fight.

This is a much easier way to get the achievement, but the game is enjoyable enough it's worth another playthrough unless you find this difficulty frustrating.
