Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the industry standard 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. The show was shot on video and looked very crisp and clear with no compression artifacts or other problems noticed. I've seen better use of style and technique, but I can't say that the picture wasn't solid (if only the slow motion were limited, it would've been great). The audio was presented with the usual choices for a Private movie, with my preference being the English language track. It was also clear except that the vocals were often downplayed in favor of a narrated track (a pet peeve of mine).

Body of Review: Those who are familiar with movies made by the foreign-porn powerhouse Private know that the company has always been good at finding hot looking women and showcasing them in a variety of movies. The company has a number of product lines, including the feature movie line of Private Gold. In the latest release in the series, Private Gold 62: House Of Games, the story (limited as it was) focused on a woman who worked as a phone sex operator that gets involved in a sex club for sexual thrills. The story was quite disposable but the sex was often pretty good with high-end production values. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by female cast (the males were not credited by Private):
Scene One: Bobbi, the blonde lead of the movie, and her man (called Mark in the movie), had a scene on a pink couch. He gave her some oral pleasure and she returned the favor with a slow, erotic blowjob before climbing aboard his penis for a ride. They swapped positions a few times and eventually she took anal but it seemed passionless to me. At least she was the one to rub out his load onto her face.
Scene Two: Maria, a lean blonde with an ample chest, was blind folded and set on a table (in the BTS feature, it was shown how the screwing was so frantic that the table broke) with candles lit. She received oral from one of the guys in the room and then gave two of the men blowjobs. They alternated screwing her until the inevitable anal and DP. They jerked off onto her face at the end of the scene. It was a warm scene but the slow motion and music lowered the heat a lot.
Scene Three: This was a sort of orgy scene, starting with three couples initially. The action quickly went to Donna and stuck with her and two of the guys as they all had oral with straight before the anal with DP (double penetration). She seemed like a professional at work but the scene was pretty good also. It ended with the usual glazing of the gal.
Scene Four: Bobbi and Donna had a lesbian scene at the club in this one. They started it off by making out on a couch with some guys watching and to be open, it really worked. Foreplay is always a good idea in this type of movie and playful foreplay generally excites people a lot, including me. Sadly, the scene went to using a big dildo and then the men joined in before it got interesting. The scene then fell into the cookie cutter sex trap with the usual oral and straight tricks before the male orgasm sequence. It wasn't bad but the scene started off looking like it would be really erotic and then became too standardized for my tastes.
Scene Five: Sara, an interesting looking gal with some weird tattoos, put her lean body to full effect by having a scene with a guy in bed. The oral was fair, the straight sex pretty energetic, and the anal marred by the slow motion before the facial.
Scene Six: In the final scene of the movie, Bobbi, Ellen, and Daniella were brought into a line up for the use of the men. Sadly, Bobbi didn't get to play with then, instead reclining on the couch with Steve and watching the action. There was a lot of oral and straight, with Sara taking the anal/DP category fairly well. I wish Daniella had more of the action this time but it was enough to see her in the scene having some fun.
Summary: Most of the women were hot to look at and at least good in bed. There was a fair amount of good sex going on too so I'm going to rate this as Recommended, even though I dislike the slow motion sex and droning music. The extras were a bit better than average for a Private release and the overall package was good, making this a good one to look for (if not the best Private has to offer).
