Is there a major gameplay disadvantage if I don't import saves?
This being my first Mass Effect game, I don't have a Shepard to import. Imported Shepards can seem to start as high as level 30, it seems like that would give a decided advantage over a brand new level 1 Shepard.
It seems like there would be a lot less worry about gaining experience if I downloaded and imported a Shepard from the internet. Should I just do that instead?
