Mediocre at best
As a lifelong DQ fan, I was confused why this game sort of released with minimal fanfare. Usually I see some hype online or ads or -something-, but DQ is DQ so I instantly ordered it without thinking.
…..which was a mistake. This game is thinly veiled advertising for the anime and manga at best. There’s no world to explore, no story to impact, you watch an episode of the anime, press X a few times to beat the boss in a tiny arena, and then….watch another episode or two of the anime. In screenshots.
The tower function offers a bit more freedom, but even as someone who’s a huge fan of DQ, this doesn’t even feel like a DQ game. I had expected something closer to Warriors at worst, but this was just….devoid of content and entertainment entirely. I tried so hard to like it too….

Fun, but a little thin
As someone who's never watched Dai, I definitely enjoyed experiencing the story for the first time. However, it's not the game I was hoping it would be from the trailers. There isnt a world to explore, as you are just playing through the main story beats of the anime, so the overall experience felt a little shallow. I had fun, and glad I played it, but probably wouldn't be replaying any time soon.

It's good. I enjoyed it. I wish it had more of a story

If you haven't watched the show, this game could be a fun way to walk through it and play some of the battles. None of the gameplay is really anything new. It gets repetitive and the main story is short. You'll spend most of your time watching cut scenes.
If you're looking for more quality Dragon Quest.. this isn't it.

It's a shame that Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai seems rushed, probably not to arrive much later than the 2020 anime, and with a playable loop that reminds us of mobile games - luckily, without the microtransactions or typical discomforts of these devices. The combat is not bad at all when the conditions of a well-designed boss are met and we have the entire group - something that often does not happen because we are forced to use only one - but everything that surrounds this base borders on the Least effort. Although the graphics, music and voices are acceptable for a title that reaches various generations, they do not stand out when compared to other adaptations that have achieved greater fidelity in animations and aesthetics.
