I did it once, but I started a new game with a level 30 character since that's the highest I've taken the time to get, just for the Power Gamer achievement.
Anybody got any tips on the type of class, powers, squadmates I should be using to.....hopefully make it not AS difficult? Right now I'm unfortunately a Soldier class, which I don't really want to be since the ammo gets used up like a motherfucker. I'm trying to use as much biotics as I can, but I have nothing other than Deep Stasis, which is a useful power, but not on Insanity unless I'm taking on a single enemy. I want 100% badly and I've got everything else bar the Arrival achievements (since I'm talking about the PS3 version and I have the DLC on 360), which I'll only get if I get the Insanity one, but the way I'm going I don't think it's gonna happen.
I'm actually going for same achievement at the moment. I'm about half way through so far so I've got a way to go but I can offer a some advice.
First of all SAVE...ALOT, honestly I never go more than 15 minutes without saving and I always save after a tough battle.
Secondly Miranda seems to be the most helpful for the majority of the game on insanity, she has both warp and overload but more importantly her Cerberus Officer Skill grants a health bonus and a bonus to weapon damage.
Thirdly Garrus and Smamra also tend to be more helpful then the others.
Fourthly remember to use your squad members skills to your advantage, it might mean you have to take a minute or two to stratagize how best to use them when in the middle of battle but it's better than dieing and having to do things over again.
Lastly Persistence, try best to learn from past mistakes, I can't recall how often I died on Horizon but needless to say I had to turn the console off at one point as I was getting pissed off, but just keep trying and eventually you should find a way to win.
Sadky these are the only tips I can offer you but they have worked well enough for me so far.
