I have them both and enjoy them both, sacred 2 you can pick up now for around £10-15 paid £12 for mine in cex.
^This. Both are good games, but you'll get much better value for money from Sacred 2 at that price.
I'll list some Pros and Cons for them both if you like (I haven't tried the MP on DH, and have minimal experience on Sacred 2, so this is based on single player mostly. Also, I haven't completed DH yet, but have each character to the mid-teens level):
+ Nice characters models (although limited variety - 3 males).
+ Nice controls
+ Pretty fun
+ Fairly cool bosses
+ Nice character animations
+ Can respec your build if you mess it up
- Uninspired environments that are obviously grid based
- Pure ranged is hard
- Invisible boundaries where enemies flee combat and fully heal
- Hard to tell what loot you're collecting
- Waste time checking for loot in empty containers
- Annoying, unavoidable acid pools
- Lack of character depth
- No female characters
- Fixed camera
- Have to spam X to shoot missiles
- Can only assign 3 powers for button access
- Very linear
- Only 3 classes to choose from
Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
+ Huge map
+ Incredibly deep character builds
+ Huge variety of loot and monsters
+ Great looking and varied environments with 100s of stunning unique areas
+ Fully open world (rewards exploration)
+ Over 500 side quests
+ Dragons! (and other cool bosses)
+ 7 different classes, all with different abilities
+ Camera can be zoomed and rotated
+ Mounts (horses and unque character mount)
+ Nice controls
+ Can assign 12 abilities for easy access
+ Can create combos to launch several abilities on one button
+ 100s of dungeons
+ Character chest allows equipment to be shared across your characters
- Character animations can be a bit dodgy at times
- Character shading is pretty flat
- Frame rate can suffer if you pull a lot of enemies into the same area
- Bugs can cause characters and/or equipment to stick with you
- Some parts of the map can be hard to navigate if there are complicated walls
- Loading can be annoying if you try to go through a town really quickly
- Can't respec your build
- Wonky auto targetting at times

Dungeon Hunter is very linear, Sacred 2 has a colossal map which will take literally weeks to fully explore!
I'm definately going to pick up Sacred 2 again soon, really don't know why I got rid of it!

I agree lots more to explore and more loot to find in sacred 2 larger map brill game and for only around £2-5 more than dungeon explorer sacred 2 well worth getting huge map to explore loads of caves to find as well.

The scope of Sacred 2 is quite simply ridiculous. This is a game you can play for years. It may be a good idea to Google your chosen character to see what kind of builds there are and use that as a basis...
