With monsters going with their own rules (ugh...) we cant really start these comparisons yet. Though if blasting isnt a great option and forces casters to be more team players, im all for it.
As I said above, PCs can explicitly be used as adversaries of appropriate CR in PF2 (unlike Starfinder) so it's not so much that we're lacking monster information as that we're lacking any information on what kind of Save DCs or Saves to expect at a paricular level for either PCs or NPCs (well, except for 1st level anyway...we know DC 15 is reasonable there, which tells us nothing).
My personal guess would be that a 10th level Wizard in PF2 would likely have 22 Int (for +6), +2 from Proficiency and +10 from level for a total of DC 28 on spells (rather than the 24 hypothesized in the OP), but that the Saves would likely be something like Level + Proficiency + Dex which probably averages more like +12 than +10...but that's entirely constructed of a tissue of assumptions, some of which are almost certainly wrong.
And, once again, there's also the issue of Metamagic and other Wizard (or Sorcerer) Class Feats.
