I can't resist describing this game using the following short review by Doc Wainwright

We open with Wanderlust, the pasteurized, processed snack “cheez” of CD-ROMS. This disc could have had all of the mindless, sycophania that I could heap on it, but alas-and-alack...The visuals are like softcore porn spawn of Myst. The music is stunning with lovely, synthesized Bach and jazz to make your journey even more surreal and ethereal. This is further enhanced by some truly astoundingly high quality graphics, beautifully and painstakingly rendered. This dreamlike world is peppered with puzzles, the mastering of which rewards you with (what else?) the gyrations of naked, sylphlike babe-o-trons. There the magic breaks down. For one thing, the graphic animations, while quite slick, run about a minute and half longer than is strictly cinematically necessary, leaving the observer tapping his/her watch and saying, “Hmmm?” impatiently. Secondly, the puzzles are little more than a token formality... almost all of them could be solved by a common flatworm, sea cucumber, or even your average OCA member. Thirdly, you only need to solve one of the puzzles to earn the key needed to end the game and, lastly, the video “treats” the viewer earns are little more than softcore, Playboy bunny, rock video jiggling, which is not really worth circumnavigating the aggressively mediocre puzzles for. All in all: rent it to check out the graphics and see the pretty girls, but ignore the rest. Unless you’re looking for a light dessert disc, don’t bother buying it, faithful reader.
