Completed it the 1st time round - got around 900G. All i need to do for 1000G is play through it a 2nd time round for insanity and tie up a couple of easy achievements. I don't reckon they tried hard enough with the achievement system. For me, Mass Effect 1 had way more to go back for and still does. Gotta justify my £59.99 purchase here. Before i get the "GOD! ALL ANYONE CARES ABOUT IS ACHIEVEMENTS MAN". I know i know. But hey, the reason you kept going back to games in the old days was to unlock stuff right? Well achievements are to be unlocked too. Go figure
1 problem with Mass Effect 2
While there are a few to many points to be had just by playing the story, I think that the achievements encourage people to try new things. You are encouraged, instead of punished, by using different team mates, and talking to all of them. And trying different powers and learning to use them well, and that's a nice way to teach you.
I like them here far more than Mass Effect 1. I wasn't about to play through the game six times just to net all 1000. I hate achievements that require multiple playthroughs. There are other reasons to play the game a second time or even a third time if you're looking for that. If anything this game has more reason than just achievements to go through again.
I like ME1's achievements far more because it would require a lot of time. ME2's are OK, except I REALLY like the Insanity achievement. It's so hard, but I'm at the last level right now so I'm definintely going to get it soon. One of the hardest RPGs I've played in a long time.

" At least the achievements in this game are less of a grind ("Use X power 75 times"). Also, they don't force you to use the same squad mates for the entire game, that annoyed me. "Word. I was really glad that I was able to mix it up from time to time.
