All signs point to this from what I've found. Not very impressive tbh.
Now keep in mind I don't play Pathfinder (sorry it's based on the s*+*ty 3.5 rules...no thanks!) but I generally use their fluff / convert their modules to enhance my 4E campaign.

We played with our campaign for about a year and a half. And he was a pretty cool, bitter, old drunk who hated the Hags of Irrisean.
Why does Ultimate Combat have more support for Wizards and other casters than it does for noncasters?
In Mordenkainen's Magnificent Emporium there is a passage about a Pathfinder story item and it throws in a bunch of stuff like "torturous passages, bleak, empty expanses" and things like that.
Isn't it enough that we have to read the edition wars online? Now we have to put up with them in our splatbooks!
I got Ultimate Combat a week a go and I've hard no time to read it until last night. The book was really, really good. None of the three new classes really tickled my fancy but flipping through the archetypes was a journey through awesome! I couldn't turn the page without wanting to make a character from one of the archetypes. Bravo Paizo. I'm really impressed by this book. Thank you.
Or a talking tumor. I hear the girls go wild for those.
You se this post? This post is something I agree with.
After having a few hours to cool off I still feel betrayed by Paizo. First the insanely horrid Humans of Golarion (cmon the least you could've done is told us on the cover that it was just a C&P job from Inner Sea Guide! Trap-splat books seem like a WotC thing and not a Paizo thing! I've come to expect exciting new material from Paizo and the book was a complete disaster in that regard.) and now this. It seems like everytime a ICV2 report comes out Paizo starts to shift closer and closer to the "Screw the customers, we're getting money!" mentality that WoTC has.
Please just stop it. Nobody wants to buy randomized miniatures and your product isn't enhanced by it one bit. It's just 100% customer screw. I don't care how well-done you think the miniatures are, I'm not buying them randomized.
However, Paizo has served me well in the past and my former claim of not buying future books was uncalled for. As long as Humans of Golarion was a fluke and the rest continue to be grandslams, I'll continue to buy books. Just consider me in "Red Alert" status here folks. Paizo has raised some red flags and I'm not entirely enthused about the direction they seem to be taking.
I fear I will not be able to find space in my budget for Ultimate Combat because of this announcement. I will not be giving anymore money to Paizo until they realize how absolute b!#$!+@~ random miniatures are. Hear that Paizo. That`s a formerly loyal customer talking with his wallet. I had such faith in you and you dashed it upon the rocks.

Wtf. Random miniatures! This was lame when WotC did it and Paizo should have known better. I feel so betrayed. It`s like a friend just led me into a dark alley and is leveraging a dagger into my back. This will affect my decision to buy Paizo products in the future. I am not spending time on a company that is just going WotC us at the first opportunity.
I wasn't being a snark in my post. We really should be able to do that! And yes cutting snarks is possible too. (although maybe only at higher levels)
I mean come on. This is getting out of hand. Why does Paizo keep hating on large herbivorous dinosaurs? Wasn't it enough that they didn't include the Triceratops in the first Bestiary?
Did we really need a pic of the Allosaurus which is basically just a T-rex variant? That space could've been used on a herbivorous dinosaur of some sort.
Tsk tsk Paizo.
