I like it, but it does have the cheese factor. I like the start, it has a retro feeling reminiscent of the old '80s Konami video games which music I love, but after that, parts of the mix sound dated, like the claps and the snare build-ups and the way the kick drum and bass notes alternate. I think the drum samples and bass synth that you are using are not helping.
The breakdown part suffers because the acoustic guitar doesn’t fit in the mix and then all of a sudden, it ends and it’s back to 1998 trance drum/bass interaction again.
Good synthesizers can be pretty expensive if you’re just starting out, but there are some great software alternatives out there to give you a more professional sound to your tracks. One I can recommend to you is Sylenth1 by Lennar Digital. It is just an awesome sounding synth that’s cheaper than some Casios.
Hope some of that was a help to you.
