    The other solution is perfect but there's an alternative to those that don't have an ME1 game save or doesn't want to play through twice.

    If you download the "Genesis" DLC for Mass Effect 2 and run through it with a new character then you'll be given this achievement at the end of your first playthrough.

    Atomic TreeDudeI just got this game finally. My ME1 save was on an my old 360. Glad to see this pops for Genesis since I could not resist buying it to Save Wrex and kill Ashley.

    Exactly as it states. Either beat the game with the same character twice or my personal preference, Just upload your character from any Mass Effect completed playthrough. 2nd option is best because it starts you off with many bonuses.

    Gumbeaux JrYou do NOT have to beat Mass Effect 2 with the same character to unlock this achievement! You can beat it twice with any character you would like. It is much easier to start the game with a Mass Effect 1 save though as the bonus is pretty nice. Also, you get a huge bonus for having this achievement when starting a new game (I think 25% more experience, and 50-60k of each mineral to start)

    Zacry072Just a side-note, but importing a Lvl. 60 ME 1 character will start you off at level 5 with 50,000 credits, 10,000 of each resource and some Renegade/Paragon points. If your character was "rich" (my character had maxed out credits at the end of ME 1) you'll start with an additional 100,000 credits.

    csg91I'm going for this achievement this week, trying insanity, I just created a new character (Engineer). I did get a bonus for having beat the game once (No Mass Effect 1 import). When I started it up I had 200,000 Credits and 50,000 of each element along with 25% XP bonus and additional Biotic Power.
