The Street Racer Pack is fairly limited in scope. What you get is exactly what you read in the description : more races in a larger variety of locales around Hong Kong. How much you enjoy this pack depends on how much you enjoyed the driving mechanics. If you prefer just hopping in whatever vehicle is handy and cruising around listening to the radio, you can go ahead and skip it. If, however, you're looking for more to do, or an extra challenge, this pack gives you a good excuse to try out all some more of those spiffy cars sitting around in your garage.

This DLC provides some fun racing for players who enjoyed mucking around with the various vehicles in Sleeping Dogs and adds three new adrenaline pumping race through Hong Kong. A great thing about the DLC is that you really feel as though you are speeding through the streets at 100 miles per hour as the cars whiz past you. This DLC is for the people who played Sleeping Dog's brilliant car races frequently or just enjoyed the fast paces speed you felt when you hopped onto a motorcycle and shot across Hong Kong.

I purchased all DLC's when they were on sale, and this is one of them that I regret.
It's not terrible, SD has decent driving mechanics, it's fun, it's just not really my cup of tea. United Front Games has members from Black Box, a developer that developed NFS before.
Many races are fun, but some are not designed very fairly imo. My favorite is the mountain race in Victoria Peak, reminds me of the manga-turned-(Chinese)-movie Initial D. Which is why I love SD, so many nods to the HK Cinema.
If you liked SD's racing diversions, definitely get this pack. For those more interested in the story and fighting, you'll find none here.
